Make sure you take good care of him, we'll need him in good shape for the Pajama bloodbath a week later

I’ll buy the jersey of any Islander player who hits him high.

Hey Chris Simon.....hows things. Ya busy?

It's been really nice to see him excelling in his rookie year here. Even nicer that he's done it playing center, since that is without a doubt the position with the worst depth in the organization.

I'd say he's comfortably exceeding expectations.

Another solid prospect in a deep pool of solid prospects.

The Bellows package.

Perhaps I'm guilty of recency bias, but I'm a bit higher on Bellows than Wahlstrom.

- Wildschwein



Totally my opinion but i believe Wahlstrom is just going through the motions. Being that he opted for college and the easier schedule i think he’s not going all out.

I really imagine one of them bumping Dal Colle out of the lineup and taking the 3rd line LW spot. Either could be a PK1/PP2 guy, if needed for the latter, and play big defensive minutes with 51/47.

But I guess Ladd will complicate things there if/when he's healthy. I'd love for Lou to just mothball him for the remainder of the season and see what we can work out over the summer.

Robida Island is quite lovely this time of year.

I think Lou and Barry go with Ladd just for his experience alone. Not saying i agree with the sentiment but they seem to be big on experience and lockeroom guys. Ladd has the resume with being a former captain and a cup winner

I said it last week, agree/disagree/indifferent I think Ladd gets back in the lineup when he's healthy. I hope he doesn't, but I think he will.

Hope Ladd takes an all-expenses-paid vacation there. Open-ended reservation.

The positive here is that if Ladd slacks or isn’t a cog on the wheel, there’s a young hungry kid waiting to take his ice.

No doubt about it, but they can go after him in July if they really want to spend that money. If they trade for him they'll have to fork over a 1st+a really good prospect, at a minimum, and then spend that same money on him over the summer anyway.

Next year could be awful too so strike while the irons hot

Imagine how many bad contracts the isles woulda had if Snow landed all the UFAs he offered huge money to? From Drury and Gomez, Vanek, to the litany of D men he went after Hamhuis, Martin, etc etc.

90% of them are arsehats you just chose to ignore them. The two guys saying the leafs were better because of their recent playoff success? When did that happen I must’ve missed it. They’re almost as delusional as Sabres fans. Almost not quite.

Almost told him we’ve actually had more playoff success than the leafs in the last four years😂

The Leafs have been one of the most interesting teams in the league since I've been on this site...from the days of ownership crapping all over the passionate fan base, to the big spending with no results, to Brian Burke's "truculence," to Shanny and the turnaround so far there. Before the Tavares stuff, it might have been a team I could rally around if the fans weren't universally the biggest bumholes in the hockey world...not just here, but on every hockey site I've been to. They make it impossible to want anything other than complete failure for that team.

“Everyone hates us because we’re Leaf fans.”

Nope, everyone hates you because you are a jackass. Like everything else they’re some good ones and more bad ones. They’ll tell you it’s because there are “so many” of them so of course you’ll run into a jackass now and then. Nope it’s because 90% of them are douche bags😂

Still crazy to me PB involved in the craziness that is the Leafs. He seems to have the complete opposite personality to fit in well. He has played well but he will hear it if the Leafs do not win.
