    sure has been a lot of speculation done on this site but nothing has been done yet to improve the team besides hoping and praying that drafted players develop and pan out

    The team is off to a historic start and is a top-3 team in the NHL...

    Every time I think of Lou these days I keep thinking of his line, "When you have time you take it," but what does that mean where there's no deadline. Like if this team got a legit 1st line winger who can score it would be a serious Cup contender, but...There's no deadline to trade for one so Lou could take that need to his deathbed, and there'd still be more time.

    The market has not been set yet - there maybe teams who fall out of contention and may become sellers in January- also prices will go down by the deadline - so everyone please be patient and enjoy the winning.

    It's kind of like a few of my investment clients. If you offered them 5% for the next 12 months or 30% for the next 3 years but you would have to wait until the very last week of the 3 years before the value moved they'd take the 5% because they couldn't stand the wait.

    I call it Premature Evacuation . . .

    Dobson and Wahlstrom coming through by the end of the season might well be a tipping point but patience is a 4-letter word to too many. Lewis & Harris for Goring works out that well about once a lifetime.

    I really hope Athanasiou does not end up being our "big move" to go for it. I am not saying the guy is bad, but he is another good 3rd liner to below average second liner. If that is what we are going to add, then what is the point. Also, lets be honest, not only does he have 5 goals this year but (and I know +/- is not a respected stat around here) he also is a -33, yes a MINUS THIRTY-THREE in 30 games. That is almost impossible to achieve. You would have to AVERAGE being on the ice for one more goal than scored in every single game of the season. Does that sound like a Trotz player? And before anyone says he is on the worst team in the league. There are only two other players on that team who are even a -17 or worse and the other two are -25. So he is so far and away worse than anyone even on his own team defensively.
    What I really want for the Isles is Hoffman.

    I'm glad you put it in terms that PW can understand.

    Hoffman is not on the market may not ever be - Florida is part of the conversation in the Atlantic.

    PWJ yeah I get that the team is once again playing well and that Trotz is the greatest coach on the planet with that said this team as it is currently constructed could possibly win 1 round in the playoffs and then be home watching games on tv like the rest of us, and then we can all talk about the historic regular season they were having while someone else is winning the Stanley Cup. I root like hell for this team but I am not disillusioned.

    I don’t think Colorado wants to give up who the Devils want but I don’t think the market is that big for him, I think it’s us or them.

    Is there actual smoke to the isles being involved or is it wishful thinking?

    I'd love to be wrong here but I just don't see Lou doing it.

    Elliotte Friedman mentioned the Isles on his podcast and said when Lou thinks his team can win it all he goes for it. But said he can’t call up Lou and ask him about Hall because he wouldn’t say a word

    I hope Colorado pays through the nose. I don't want him.

    I'm sure plenty will cry and curse Lou if we don't get him so looking forward to that. Haven't seen the Chicken Littles lately, this will bring them out of hiding.

    Yes you do. We know these past few years of sharing your opinion on him has all been an act.

    Isles just need to reacquire HaRmonic to add to their first round pick and finish it off with Jermey Colliton. Hall is as good as an Isle! :sarcasm:

    this just digs up thoughts of how much of a haul the Isles could have had for pajama boy if he just said he was really unsure what he wanted to do

    Land a guy or land the RIGHT guy? There's a big difference.

    If we can get Hall cheap and strictly use him as a rental, I'm down. That's not realistic though so I pass. I've never been a big fan of his.
