I can see this board will be fun
Fans feeling confident and sky high after a win, then ranting after a loss.
I'm not ranting, but I don't think the Isles are as good as they have shown us in the first seven or so games.

I don't think the third line can sustain being a consistent scoring threat. Aucoin causes just too many turnovers and gets out muscled. Okposo has still been a mystery and Bailey has been too, who knows how he will play when he returns. The addition of Vis will help, but how much? Streit is defintely not the player he was before his injury and it's showing.

JT, Hamonic, and the other few can't do it alone. This team has played great hockey but need to look better than they did against top teams. This is two games is a row that they played top Eastern Conference teams and they could pull out a W.
