BPT could use the help, too. They've been bad lately.

, 13:20 to go in the second period.

Not surprising really, considering they lost a top winger and their #1 defender.

He's not moving his feet, he looks like he's just floating out there. Doesn't help that he's slower than evolution.

New York Islanders will be having a moment of silence before their next game to mourn the Chiarelli firing.

Not only has Toews not looked out of place at all, but you could make an argument he's been one of their best defensemen lately. I don't think there's a chance he stays down there.

That's always been his problem, and while I used to just think it was laziness, I don't believe that's the case anymore. It seems like when he overthinks a play, he stops moving his feet, and then when he stops moving his feet he runs out of options and makes a bad turnover. I've noticed it on the power play for most of the season. When he moves the puck quickly he makes some really good passes. When he hangs on to it, he slows, then stops completely, then turns it over.

When he overthinks a play he's kind of like a computer trying to use this site...all the other processes slow to a crawl and then everything just freezes and finally crashes. If Bailey had an internal fan it'd probably sound like a jet engine at those times.

Yeah, except Hextall had less than 4 years to right the Flyers. Snow had over a decade. Hextall also (arguably) drafted the Flyers soon to be franchise starter, and chose (rightly) not to rush his development.

As far as Lou fixing the Isles goaltending, I'm putting that almost solely on the shoulders of Mitch Korn. I'll gladly give kudos to Lou for bringing Korn (and Trotz) into the organization however.

I'm not saying Hextall is the Oilers best option. But I am saying I'd gladly have him over a typical Oilers choice in Lowe, MacT, K Gretzky or Messier (shudder).

He looks extra-lazy lately. He's one of those guys that, I think, looks like he's not busting his ass but really is (similar to Robinson Cano) but lately he looks disinterested. He's gotta snap out of whatever he's got going on soon. Hopefully the ASG break lets him recharge his batteries sufficiently, because it looks like he needs it.

I imagine that's only the case if Ladd is healthy. I think they just want to give him the opportunity to play in the AHL Allstar game.
- eichiefs9


Yea I just think he has looked kind of lost a little. I just think that might be the case

There were times last night where the puck was against the boards and bailey was the closest to it but he didn’t even bother to get it. Is he afraid to get hurt or something?? He looks bad out there. Nelson seems to lost a step to. They need a top winger for barzal. I don’t want this to be another Tavares situation

He's clearly been slow adjusting to the pro game and he's looked good in moments and not-so-good in others. He's a better option than Schroonwoggle or Ross 'The Net Loss' Johnston. Ladd will likely get his 3rd line LW spot back when he's ready to go.

Drive for 5 I guess. Personally I think Barzal, Beauvillier and Eberle kinda mitigate a 3 decade old slight.

I will always hate the Rangers but the rivalry is nothing like it was. Furthermore the Oil have been the only team as pathetic as the isles, so it’s hard to hate on them. I don’t care what Jari Kurri did in 1985
