    Truth be told, keep the expectations low, he's a passable #6 who can clear the crease and move the puck. Just have to be prepared for some terrible passes.

    I'd rather keep him in the pressbox as a #7 and let the kids actually play down in Bridgeport. We got a lot of 1-year guys and I'm thinking Lou is looking to flip some of them at the deadline and ease some of the AHL prospects into the lineup.

    Huh. #7 popcorn eater, or have some of the young D on the Island really been that bad in camp?

    This is a good deal if he’s sitting in the press box while the kids get playing time

    What's the Islanders D looking like? I saw they sent down Aho. Does Toews make it?

    You're both wrong, this is the Halak replacement.

    Lou is gunning for a 20% chance at Hughes. Smart signing.

    Not sure if I would take Sbisa over Aho/Toews/Vande Sompel but I mean... good for Luca. The guy knows how to earn a paycheque.

    Looked solid in the preseason. He’s a vet with experience. He’s not expected to be more than a 6-7 Defensman.


    Remember the Name Devon Toews.
