Those would be great, given the current run on toilet paper.

Canucks tonight. Probably too late for me to bother watching.
Clash of the Titans tonight. Vancouver has like 3 wins in the last 15 games.
Mirror image of themselves. Prediction: Matthew Barzal lights it up in front a hometown crowd and the Isles go onto beat the Nucks 4-2 including an empty netter by Barzal to seal it late.


He certainly played well, but oh, how I wish your prediction was correct. Instead, it was the other local Islander who scored. Andrew Ladd with what I read was his first goal since Oct 2018. :shock: Then they relied on him as the 3rd shooter in the SO. He missed the net entirely. Trotz defended the decision, saying Ladd had been 18/50 in the SO prior to that.

Oilers and Flames coming up the next few nights. Isles outside of the playoff picture, with with games in hand on some teams. I was bored at lunch today and ran projections. Isles are "on pace" to finish with like 96.7 points and take WC2 (including projecting everyone else in the east).

Perhaps this should go in an "off-season" thread???

Anyway. Lou and the Isles gave fans a chance to ask questions, and gave us some stuff to discuss. https://www.nhl.com/islanders/news/isles-inbox-lou-lamoriello/c-316244088

Of obvious importance- injury updates. Cizikas and Boychuk will be ready when play resumes (this year or next). Pelech is out until training camp, again, whether than's at a normal time or delayed.

All indications are that Sorokin is coming over next year. This is HUGE for the Isles, especially since both Greiss and Varlamov have performed a tandem Donkey Show all season long. Okay, parts of the season. Trouble is, they both get hot or cold at the same time. Last year Greiss and Lehner did amazingly well to yin-yang on hot streaks, keeping the team level all year long.

Lou says he intends to lock up Barzal prior to July 1st, but would match any offer sheet. That's a big statement if he doesn't get the deal done beforehand. Should have just left it at not letting him get to July 1st.

What about Pulock? Could be in for a long term deal.

Read the rest. Someone else asked if Lou planned to sign Pulock, Toews & Barzal. Lou said yes to all 3, saying they planned to have it all done before July 1st. Nobody asked about matching if those guys made it to July 1st though. But I certainly wouldn't expect him to say "nah, we're gonna let that guy walk" if there's any chance the season resumes. :lol: Imagine the fallout from such a thing?

Different Isles players and Trotz sharing short clips about how to stay busy, etc. Clutterbuck's is amusing. Glad to see his kid learned from dad's on-ice pest antics. :lol: And Bailey's is like every parent working from home these days.
