Ochocinco in goal?

Because they're sensitive! Scott Weinstein 5pts Only a little over a month until training camp starts. Hang in there, guys. erika 5pts So Brian Trottier will be on Ted Nolan's coaching staff!.......Hmm, what happened to the Islanders reassigning him? As I said in the past, Nolan, Moulson, new front office, and now Trottier...my prediction is that the Sabres will contend before we do....hope I am off the mark on this one, since we have better scoring threats, and I feel Trottier is excellent in player development but is not geared for coaching. We shall see..... hockeyfn91 5pts Last year he could have started 20 games... this year he would be in the AHL.. Christopher Salvatore 5pts He'll fit well with Josh Ho Sang Jason Zimmermann 5pts Ochocinco was Rick DiPietro's save percentage. REDSpointofview 5pts @puckznpadz I have no idea why they would be considering another forward but, I do know this... Every time Eklund's name is mentioned around here, everyone turns their nose up and says he lacks any credibility... REDSpointofview 5pts @jepliberty It appears the author is one Kevin Martin, and I have absolutely no idea about his connection to the team. A Google search on him reveals nothing. As far as the article,,, he calls Anders Lee the wild card that could upset his line up but also adds four forwards as extras, conveniently including all 16 on the roster while only suggesting that TJ Brennan might displace Scott Mayfield on defense, and Mayfield is probably already ticketed for the AHL. Traditionally NHL teams will carry two extra defensemen and one extra forward. That's a lot of cutting and adding that still has to be done and there is also nothing in that article that suggests the health of Lubomir Visnovsky might be of some concern. There is also no mention of Brian Strait or Matt Carkner, on the roster on one way deals or Matt Donovan who could be sent down to Bridgeport on his two way deal. Whoever this author is,,, he wrote one hell of a fluff piece... camb33 5pts @jepliberty cant talk hockey now because nothings going on, cant talk hockey after thanksgiving because isles are usually out of it, our best months are sept and October I guess smittybs 5pts @Jason Zimmermann Pot calling the kettle black? Be true to yourself big guy. Derek Scheer 5pts @erika Salt in the wounds , guy who should still be our coach hires a guy that should be worshipped by our franchise. smittybs 5pts Wangbegone, Have I breached your blog etiquette? Who cares what you think? Your buddy JZ did just fine standing up for himself, but now after you stepped up for him, you both sound ignorant. Both of you should just stick to making comments about the game. It's simple enough for you grasp. Leave the social commentary alone. You can't handle it. Your too dim witted and It apparently never has come easy to you. I do post on other sites. I generally read this one. I stay off the dialogue because of the same old path nearly every conversation takes. Your bud said something that leaves people with some morals and common sense shaking their head. Now that he's got you to back him up, I'm sure he feels better about himself. The two of you are like the deaf leading the blind, you both fit in with the current NY Islanders regime. kevinpt 5pts @Jason Zimmermann Serious question - Is this supposed to be funny? Or are you just trying to get a rise from people? myisles72 5pts @Jason Zimmermann What's wrong with you? smittybs 5pts Delete these posts. orangeblue 5pts @Christopher Salvatore watch what you say dude... show some respect... that's just classless on your end willymayshays 5pts @Christopher Salvatore Why is that? slapshot18_rs 5pts @REDSpointofview which...he does. and i have no idea why setoguchi would even be an option. hopefully theres no truth to that. slapshot18_rs 5pts @REDSpointofview pretty difficult to determine the opening night roster right now - theres just too many variables in play. REDSpointofview 5pts @jepliberty Sorry,,, he does mention Visnovsky's health but only as an issue on which pairing he might play. I suspect there is more going on than just that... jepliberty 5pts @camb33 @jepliberty We can always talk corsi numbers. lol Jason Zimmermann 5pts @smittybs @Jason Zimmermann I am. Chicks dig me. Don22 5pts @wangbegone @erika Yeah - I'm sure he can be an asset, but I'm not all that convinced that Nolan and Trots are the difference makers there. Buffalo may contend one day, but I don't think it's going to be any time soon. Jason Zimmermann 5pts @myisles72 @Jason Zimmermann Nothing. That's why I'm not at the bar with them. Jason Zimmermann 5pts @smittybs Is someone feeling a little sensitive? That's so cute! willymayshays 5pts @orangeblue @Christopher Salvatore thank you REDSpointofview 5pts @slapshot18_rs @REDSpointofview I totally agree on that note and that's why I labelled that article a nice piece of fluff... Any number of things might happen before October 10th,,, and some number of things have to happen, and that number deals with reducing the roster to 23... jepliberty 5pts @REDSpointofview @jepliberty Red. Agree with that assessment, Whoever wrote that article seems to have a pair of Rose colored glasses on, I hope what is written can be worked out for the betterment of this team but there is much more then just putting thoughts to paper, so many intangibles to deal with during a long season. smittybs 5pts @wangbegone Relational aggression?? That is exactly what your buddy did. Your big idea contradicts your entire point of view. You really are the deaf leading the blind in this case. It's totally laughable. What else you got? kevinpt 5pts @orange2327 I wasn't riled at all. myisles72 5pts You would defend it. doc942 5pts @Jason Zimmermann @myisles72 Scraping the bottom of the barrel again eh jason? I'm sure your kids are proud of you aren't they? Jason Zimmermann 5pts @doc942 They are. You can Skype with them, if you'd like. They like people. Mark Kaiser 5pts @doc942 zimmer has kids, yikes smittybs 5pts @wangbegone The initial "joke" is despicable, poorly orchestrated, and is an attempt to disgrace a group of people. For what purpose, who laughs at that. This isn't me being sensitive. This is one person being called out for doing something in the public. This isn't an exclusive club. If you put it out their then deal with the fallout.You use the term relational aggression wrong. It applies to what your partner did, and for some reason you are his hero. doc942 5pts @Jason Zimmermann @doc942 I wish them well in life. Thanks for the invite, however, no thank you. doc942 5pts @wangbegone @doc942 Settle down Wang. Why is it ok for Zim to make jokes against the "preferences" of Bailey, Snow and DiPietro but then Zim is off limits to criticism. Talk about clueless. I didn't say anything about his kids you fool... just that they must be proud of their daddy for bullying / bashing the preferences of a segment of the population. Stop being a hypocrite. His attempt at jokes and being funny are clearly not funny at all to intelligent human beings... only to vermin. camb33 5pts @wangbegone @doc942 doc's been a shill since the beginning,he'll be a shill till the end islesfan77 5pts @wangbegone @doc942 There it is. "sock puppets." Wonderful. We missed that for too long. Jason Zimmermann 5pts @smittybs @wangbegone Take "joke" out of quotes. It was, in fact, a joke. Not a "so called joke" but an actual joke. What group of people has it disgraced? doc942 5pts @camb33 @wangbegone @doc942 yep... I'm a shill. You are so predictable. Whenever you have nothing else - just throw out the "shill" card or kool aide card. It's akin to throwing out the race card when all else fails.When have I ever shown support of Wang? I have liked some (probably many) of Snow's moves and hated others. Hardly a shill. smittybs 5pts @Jason Zimmermann @smittybs @wangbegone Ultimately. You only disgrace yourself. The joke isn't funny, and you "orchestrate relational aggression on forums such as these." Jason Zimmermann 5pts @smittybs @Jason Zimmermann @wangbegone I only said it was a joke. I never said anything about it being funny. smittybs 5pts @Jason Zimmermann @smittybs @wangbegone now that is funny Jason Zimmermann 5pts @smittybs @Jason Zimmermann @wangbegone I knew I could make you smile. smittybs 5pts @Jason Zimmermann @smittybs @wangbegone it was a round about way to get there. Jason Zimmermann 5pts @smittybs @Jason Zimmermann @wangbegone I'll take it any way I can get it.
