"the Islanders are receiving production from just about everyone on a roster that seems stitched together from an expansion draft"

Never change Toronto media, never change.

The Islanders are winning because current-Leaf John Tavares gave them the opportunity to come together as a team by walking away

Yup. Tanner claimed the Caps Cup was almost exclusively due to Trotz's assistant staff.

Why does EK still allow this guy on his site?

I know right. He made it sound like the entire Isles fanbase owes JT a sloppy BJ for bailing on them.

Why does Katz still allow Chiarelli to run the Oilers?

Such mysteries may never be answered from this side of the grave.

McDavid seems very patient but how long will that last?

Thank you Tavares😂

“First of all, I don’t think it has to do with anything of the past,” Lamoriello said of the Tavares effect. “I think it’s all with the players who have accepted their roles to have success. It’s been a collective, it’s been different people on different nights and it’s been people enjoying each other’s success. That’s been the one thing that I’ve been most impressed about.”

What Lameriello is really saying here is come on give me a break they had Garth Snow as gm and Jack Capuano and Doug Weight as coaches.

Could be something, could be nothing.

Team scouts (outside the usuals) in attendance for tonight's #SJSharks , #FlaPanthers game: #NHLBruins, #LGRW, #GoAvsGo, #Isles.


Sounds like the vultures are circling the Panthers

I don't even know who the hell teams are looking at. Panthers have no interesting UFA's. Maybe Dadonov or Hoffman? Those would be about the only two guys that it seems mildly-plausible could be moved since they have one more year on their deals and no NTC's. I guess that Bogdan Kiselvich guy is could be traded, since they apparently said that, but I can't imagine he moves the needle for too many GM's.

So, on a different note, Lee is 18-19-37 and a +16 in 48 games thus far this season.

Has his performance this season altered your hopeful contract expectations?

I'm thinking he's well on his way to getting 7 mill per.

That jackoff also thinks the isles are the worst team in the league because his calculator told him so. I troll him like once a week

Dunno.

They need goaltending bad. Maybe bad enough to entertain moving a bigger name? Trochek? Huberdeau?

Bjugstad being in play wouldn't surprise me.

I could see Bjugstad, too. But as far as getting goaltending...3 of the 4 teams with scouts there are playoff teams, so I can't imagine any of them are shipping out solid goaltenders to FLA. Maybe Howard from DET, but they're absolutely insane if they trade Huby/Trochek for him.

Indeed they would be.

I wonder what they'd pony up for Greiss?

I have no idea, they'd have to find a way to dump Reimer. He's got 3 more years and Lu has 4 more. Doesn't seem like a fit there to me.

Nonsense.

Reimer and Trochek for Greiss and Beauvillier.

Florida gets their goaltender, a 20 goal C/W hybrid, and rids themselves of Reimer.

Isles get a (frank)ing solid 2C and a backup making the same coin as their previous one.

Seems somewhat even.

Hard to see a match with the Isles and Florida unless the Isles want to move Sorokin.
