    It's like getting to the summit, and finding an even taller mountain looming ahead.

    Leafs and Islanders on HNIC. I'll probably watch some it since the Pens game doesn't start until an hour later.

    The Islanders top brass trying to make out that Tavares is some kind of pariah for leaving the Islanders. Ridiculous

    He should have ditched their crappily run team half a decade ago.

    What does that make Trotz for leaving Washington then?

    Trotz told his squad that Tavares was a guy that didn't wanna play with you guys anymore.

    Yeah but I don’t think he is trying to characterize Tavares as some pariah. For context most of the islanders went to JTs wedding, I am pretty sure Trotz is just reminding them not to go easy on their buddy during the game

    I totally get what he was going for.
    Just finding anything to get the team going.

    In a best of 7, I would still pick the Isles over the Leafs though.

    Nothing worse than Crosby haters dismissing his point totals with "secondary Assists". Like bro, driving play and turning Dupuis,Kunitz,and number of others into goal scorers is way more impressive than standing still and taking one timers on a Powerplay.

    Trotz put together the game plan to neutralize the Leafs a few years ago. Stack the blue line and take away the middle of the ice. Mind you, it was with a more talented Caps team. However, the Trotz Effect would be the X-factor for the Isles.

    If we keep winning we leap frog Montreal and Boston.

    So technically it isn’t as big of a deal. We’re seven points ahead of 5th place in our division.

    lol at Toronto getting shut out by the Islanders. I don't mind that team but their fans are from another planet.

    I can't believe Montreal can't find a better backup than Niemi. Even at league minimum someone else has to be better.

    Glad the Isles won.

    Lol I bet Oilers fans don’t even care they got blown out, McJesus got 2pts. That’s all that matters to them.

    I've got a love/hate relationship with the Leafs. I actually like watching that team; so talented. But posting on here makes it unbearable to deal with that fanbase when they have success.

    At least Canadiens fans realize when their team sucks. Leafs fans are just oblivious when Toronto sucks.
