Any idea why the isles would be looking at Devon Setoguchi ?

Hey, I was going to stick my toe in these waters, but it seems to be too cold, the lack of hockey news has people at each others throats, it's almost as bad as when the season is ongoing. lol

Why do chicks dig Islander fans? Because they're sensitive!

Only a little over a month until training camp starts. Hang in there, guys.

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.....

Last year he could have started 20 games... this year he would be in the AHL..

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...

@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...

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.

@Jason Zimmermann

Serious question - Is this supposed to be funny? Or are you just trying to get a rise from people?

@REDSpointofview which...he does.  


and i have no idea why setoguchi would even be an option.  hopefully theres no truth to that.

@REDSpointofview pretty difficult to determine the opening night roster right now - theres just too many variables in play.

@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...

@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.

@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...

@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.

@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?

@Jason Zimmermann @myisles72 Scraping the bottom of the barrel again eh jason?  I'm sure your kids are proud of you aren't they?

@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.

@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.

@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?

@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.
