    Lou must be aiming higher, and via trade.
    Yup - agreed!

    • Yup, certainly not losing sleep over Murray signing elseware. people just assumed the Isles were interested because they need a defensman or 2, but he wouldn’t have filled an actual need, top 4 defensman.

        At this point there is really no one left that is a free agent. So we will have to fill the open spot through a trade.

          I wouldn't be surprised if they go with Bolduc or Salo and have Hickey as a backup if they don't perform well.

            If they believe that Hickey can come back to what he was it's not the worst strategy. Better than signing Suter for 4 years or giving Goligoski $5 million.

              yup, but I think that was the plan all along.

              2 spots to fill, 1 trade and 1 kid.

              • I guess we will know about Pelech next week.

                First hearings are set for Aug 11 with Adam Pelech (NYI), Michael McNiven (MTL) & Jakub Vrana (DET). Negotiations can continue, and a deal can be struck as late as right before the hearing begins.

                  My guess Islanders are going to settle and pay him $6.5M x 6 Years on Average

                        • He didn't just re-up with the Leafs? This does not compute!

                            Good signing for Florida.
                            The object is to win. Not just to compete, but to win.

                              This guy is toast. He was toast last year when he was with the Leafs.
