Woah woah I wouldn't go that far, that's like going out and kicking DP's dog bad

Careful, common sense clearly isn't looked upon highly with some posters here.

Enstrom's out, Hainsey's out, and Stuart looks to be out at the moment. Buff is the biggest cone in the league. Our D is patched together right now. Bogosian should be our best D tonight, which isn't saying much, but he's played very well this year. So I put 23 vCash on the Isles tonight.

Thank you, the game hasnt even started. If he plays gives up a few softies and that results in a loss, let the whine fest reign. Until then, lets actually have game talk.

Oh good, looks like the GDT's will be DP flame wars just like last year.

Nice.

Capuano has really done a poor job managing the net minder situation. This is a must win game with what we have coming up. Juggling the lines has to come soon too. Give Okposo a shot next to JT, if he still is unimpressive, then you know for sure KO just wasnt what we thought.

Really? Considering the goalies haven't cost this team one single game so far this season, I'd say he's doing just fine with it. But I do agree with you when it comes to juggling the lines, but I suspect that's going to happen once Nino finishes his stint in Bridgeport.

Are this many of you so lost as to think the Islanders win and lose games based on goaltending? Seriously, get a grip.

The Islanders lose because they have a deficiency in talent compared to the teams they play and they show up for 10 minutes per night.

It doesn't matter who's in net. The Isles are scoring 2 goals per game and many of their main guys have chances to win games and they completely blow it. You would HOPE that the Islanders could beat Winnipeg, but nothing I've seen from this team makes me think we can compete in the work ethic department with the Jets for a full 60 minutes.

That's whats sad.

All things considered, it should be a very high scoring game. I'm thinking a touchdown and a field goal a piece.

Hard for me to blame Cappy on the goalie situation. I don't think he, or any coach wants to be juggling 3 goalies. It looked like he was maybe gonna try to push Nabakov into that leading roll but that didn't last very long with Nabby getting an injury.

I have more of a problem with the not changing of the lines. It's not like this is baseball where changing your line up for a day means taking a player out. This team has strugled to score and there's no reason to stay so dead set to one line up. I mean you can even change it up for a period and just see if some thing clicks, and if you don't like it just go back to the set 4. Besides, right now JT is so far ahead of the rest of his teammates maybe putting an Okposo or Comeau with JT for a game or two can just help get them going and create a but more confidence in their games.

I have to disagree with you here. I don't think they lost so far because of their talent yet. I agree with their compete level, it's pretty much been abysmal but definitely not the talent aspect of it.

Tomato, tomahto. Whether you want to call it a talent problem or not, there is a lack of production from supposedly talented players that is a major burden on the rest of this team, and would still be a major burden even if Patrick Roy circa 2001 was in net. I'm sure Okposo, Bailey and Comeau look great in practice and drills, but their zero goals and three points through nine games is too much for a mid-pack team to endure.

In total agreement with you on that, just think it's lack of compete level/heart rather than skill.

Right. We should wait until he blows the game, and THEN complain.

It reminds me of the Isles last year, Streit out, good 4-6's out in Jurcina and Eaton and then Wisniewski and Byfuglien being defensive cones.

And that's one small reason in a list of very long ones of why you're not a professional athlete.

Would like to see Comeau and Bailey get on track and Tavares pot a couple before DP sprains an ovary.

Welcome to the Winnipeg fans who are respectful, want to talk hockey, and come in peace. With all you have suffered, we commiserate with you and wish the Jets well.......except when they play the Isles that is.
Loved the win over the hated F'ers thugs. Nice work right there.
Here' to a good, clean game tonight, no injuries.......we win in regulation after Ricky gives up a late softie to make it close.

DP has played ONE GAME this year that meant anything - and played well.

He also played in games that meant nothing - and played well.

BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT, until 7:00pm tonight. Once the puck drops we can judge him further based on his play.

I believe that Cappy believes that goalies need a couple games in a row to get going, so he told them: Unless someone plays awful, Montoya will have the first few games.. then Nabby.. then DP.. every goalie is going to play a few games in a row so we can evaluate..

A) Our goaltending has NOT been the problem; and B) Cappy is evaluating; oh, and lastly, C) DP deserves our support tonight.

Isles 5, Jets 2

Prediction: Grabner will have a helluva game...in terms of generating opportunities for himself. However, he'll connect on 2 of them.

It makes more sense to save Montoya for the Caps, so I can live with DP in net.

Cue "Rickywatch 2012." If he's still got the body for this, at least some of the proof will inevitably be in the pudding once he gets 15-20 starts.

Hoping the team busts the slump in style or Capuano surprises us with a little line toggle in the effort. They've played fair the last two games, but fair in the east seems to get you 10th or 11th place.

Go Islanders.
