    No surprise ....Domi was going on an unsustainable 90 point pace and he carried JD all year .

    It's certainly possible, and they aren't that far back, but at this point, it's going to be between Buffalo and Montreal, with Boston, Pittsburgh and the Isles probably safe right now.

    given he only had nine goals all of last year including only five against a goalie, not sure why anyone would expect him to become a 30 goal man overnight

    Islanders are playing at an unsustainable rate though. They aren't a .900 points percentage team. It is funny though how last Thursday we looked like a lock, now on Tuesday, people are bemoaning missing and finishing ninth

    yeah no shit, win four of six on the road trip and five of seven overall, all is good. Lose two in a row and OMG we are talentless.

    Petry was atrocious last night, arguably his worst game in our uniform. Not sure what he was up to on the only goal of the game.

    Nobody is saying they are talentless, they just have trouble with teams in the Norris. 9 straight losses to the Wild? That's ridiculous, they are not that good.

    Actually, Wiseguy did.

    Not scoring on a scrub team like that is bad.

    I had him pegged at about 60 points with a change of scenery .

    He surprised many by driving his line and carrying it on his back for the first 25 games .

    He is more a playmaker and generating scoring chances than finishing .

    I wouldn't mind seeing Gallagher with Domi and Drouin.

    Yup - and KK with Tatar & Armia

    Armia misses so many of KK setups.

    You aren't impressed with 8 points in what 18 games?

    Armia is there to win puck battles which he does exceptionally well. Yes I wish Habs had Tkachuk on their team but alas...

    Meh, most thought this team would be bottom feeders this season. The way they played the last 3 games is what most had expected. Pop gun offense, Carey giving them a chance.

    KK needs a pure sniper playing with him, a guy who can receive a pass and snap it on net. KK has a nice shot but looks to pass first and right now, he doesnt have a guy to put that puck on net.

    Armia, hands of stone, is not that guy. Lehkonen no luck isn't either. Tatar, maybe

    Which is why I’ve been saying MB needs to find a way to get Stone at the deadline - anyway, Tatar is the closest this team has to a pure sniper.
