just my opinion but i think isls will be a better team this yr than last because of all the new coaches not just trotz. but still not a real threat. but you never know 10 more wins and you make the playoffs.....

The Isles are going to find out that the Trotz factor is his assistant Coaches. And the one that stayed in Washington is the one that was the straw that stirred that drink.

Because he did so great as an assistant in Pittsburgh, right?

Nope, because he was the main reason that the Caps players didn’t fall apart in the playoffs. But you’ll see.

If isles get decent goaltending they are a lock to make the playoffs

Quotes aren't working, but that's a joke right? What part of that roster screams lock for the playoffs?

Picking up Mitch Korn is an under the radar move that might yield surprising improvements in the goaltending department, Trotz deserves credit for getting him to the island.

Bit of a non-factor with that roster. Kind of reminds me of Dallas Eakins coaching Edmonton, any expectations will be somewhat out of reach.

Flyer fans forget that goaltending is the reason THEY might not make the playoffs but they haven’t had a decent goaltender in so long it’s laughable flyer fans all jumping on the carter what’s his name bandwagon like he’s a can’t miss good luck with that!

Islanders have a much better coaching staff that should help. Also, not convinced deHaan is a top 4 dman. Maybe last year for the Islanders but not overall.

I like DeHaan but he is always Injured. if he was healthy he would be in this lineup. hopefully he can play 40 games this year if that

In all honesty, this is the hottest goalie prospect to come around in a long, long time.

I just thank God we don't have AMac ....

Didn't the Flyers trade Bob? He was a pretty good prospect.

AMac is pretty decent, just overpaid

No way. This team isn’t making the playoffs. Waaaaayy too many holes. This season is all about setting a new course, letting Lou/Trotz implement their beliefs, culture and evaluate what the organization has. Isles should finish with more pts than last season just because of coaching alone, but it won’t be enough to make the playoffs.

Was the defense in terms of players bad? Or was it the refusal to block shots scheme that was the factor?

Lack of structure. Too many odd man rushes. Too many guys left wide open because 2, sometimes 3 defenders would engage the puck, leaving their man open in front.

Rumors say they're hearing it from isles side which means it's probably false. If we've learned anything from how the isles and Lamirello works. No one knows it's happening till after it happens.
