    No one will take him. He is ours for the duration of that contract. Wouldn't surprise me to see us resign him at the $750,000 special next year.

    I am not defending Chara; he needs to be much better. But I thought 2 of those goals were much more on Dobson. We REALLY need him to take a step forward, to replace the good aspects of what Leddy did and hopefully do them better. So far he's not doing it. Is it playing with Chara? Maybe, but not on the power play and to me his progress is still an open and important question.
    Wouldn't surprise me to see Dobson with Greene tonight.

    Dobson needs a vet who can play Defense. Chara is not providing or helping anything for Dobson.

    Matt Martin skating with Casey Cizikas and Cal Clutterbuck. Otherwise, everything else looks the same for #Isles. Varlamov and Schneider still splitting reps evenly while Sorokin has his own net.

    Sebastian Aho getting reps with both Andy Greene and Scott Mayfield but Greene-Mayfield remained a pair during line rushes. Varlamov looks like he’s moving really well. No restrictions.

    #Isles PP units the same
    Dobson, Beauvillier, Palmieri,Barzal, Lee
    Pulock, Bailey, Nelson, Wahlstrom, Parise.

    Damn you! LOL.

    Was just going to post Timashov also on waivers for contract termination. That stinks. I'd like to see him in Bridgeport. I guess that won't happen.

    Semyon Varlamov was the first goalie on ice for #Isles, followed quickly by Ilya Sorokin and Cory Schneider. That should be a very good sign regarding Varly.

    Matt Martin also out on the ice for #Isles practice. He’s wearing a regular blue practice jersey while Leo Komarov Ross Johnston and Kieffer Bellows all wearing gray practice jerseys, likely indicating they are extra forwards. Looks good for Martin to make season debut tomorrow

    So all #Isles on the ice for practice, 23 currently on roster plus Varlamov and Martin.

    Chara is just terrible, even worse than the bad I thought he'd be. He's worse than having Leddy out there. This is a big problem.
    Couldn't agree more. And yes, he is more of a liability than Leddy. No doubt about it.

    Islanders were skating with more energy to start the game. They are being hampered by Chara and Sorokin right now who both are liabilities. When you factor in that the Islanders are going to play low scoring, tight games, you need to eliminate liabilities. Granted, you are not going to eliminate Sorokin, but he has to play better. I hate to say this, because it's a great story of him coming back, but Chara can't play in this lineup. Goals against in both games are directly attributable to him. He is probably in the best shape he possibly can at 44, but it's not enough for this level.
