I'd be very interested in Lu for Nino +


Isles have stabilty in goal with Nabby.

1.Don't see Luo waiving his NTC for the NYI.
2. I don't see the isles looking for another long term contract, after the disasterous Yashin/DiPietro deals.
3.Don't see Snow trading top youngsters for a 33/34 yr old, while in his youth movement.
4.I haven't come across anyone with any credibilty, saying the isles are giving up on Nilson/Poulin/Koskinen.

Hard to tell, he was ver quiet tonight before the deflection. He DID seem very happy to finally score a goal though, so you never know.

You're probably right, Nabokov is essentially a bridge until the younger goalies and a guy like Schnieder would be an even better fit than Luongo just given his age and NTC, but we'd need to get a very solid return to trade Schnieder.

I have to say I admire your team and how well you guys have drafted over the past 4-5 years, starting to pay dividends and hope to see you guys in playoff contention.

I think Schneider might be the guy they target. But if they don't I expect Garth to take a goalie or two in the draft this year.

Nino worked with a life coach a few yrs ago. It sounds more common in Europe then NA, although it sounds similar to Ryan O'Rielly's experience with his dad Brian.

http://islanderspointblank.com/news/...-mental-coach/
Sutter is the 19-year-old’s “mental coach” (Niederreiter’s term of choice). Based in the player’s native Switzerland, Sutter helps Niederreiter in sessions over the phone, via email and in person with his focus, relaxation, confidence and competitive spirit. She is not a doctor, but a professional more commonly referred to in America as a life coach. The fine-tuning of mental skills famously worked for Oprah Winfrey; certainly it could increase the production of a talented teenage hockey player.

The Isles have made two big long term commitments to players in the past and they've both bakcfired badly. Don't make the mistake again with Loungo. Keep Nabby around until Nilsson or Poulin are ready

This. Honestly wouldn't be surprised if Nabby wants to re-sign again as long as we continue winning.

I don't know what's wrong with working with someone who helps you to become better in tough mental situations?

And the text didn't say that Sutter worked with Oprah, but that Oprah too hat a mental coach which helped her.

Roger Federer also used to work with mental coaches. In his earlier days he was often hot-blooded and lost his temper when things didn't go his way on the court. He is the complete opposite now and you can see where it led him.

if the young man needs a life coach, he should get one. good for recognizing weakness and better for addressing it. it'd bother me more if he let the stigma of "weakness" stop him from seeking help.

You ever leave your home country at such a young age and have to adapt to being on the road and trying to get adjusted playing a sport for the rest of your young adulthood?

I don't see anything wrong with having a life coach.

Colorado's Ryan O'Reilly's dad, works with teams in a similar position. I'm not sure if they call it a life coach. ROR credits his dad for much of his development.

Instead of asking what it is, stop being ignorant and look it up. It's not an uncommon thing.

A life coach may very well help Niederreiter. They are very prominent in the sports world.

Nino also has an accountant who does his taxes. What the hell is wrong with him?

Folks, this topic is so not worth any more posts I hope a mod comes in and wipes all of this stuff off (including this post) and tells everyone to knock it off with the invasive garbage.

He is a human being, give him some space.

Schneider should be a goalie that we target. The problem is regardless of which goalie they eventually trade they'll want some talent that will help them win this year. I could see Nino, Poulin or Nillson as future pieces and Frans and Viznovsky as players to help them this year, but that package wouldn't be nearly enough since its quantity instead of quality.

Schneider and Luongo are goalies that steal games for you. I could see Nino in a package for either.

Why would Vancouver want to trade Schneider? He's the guy who made Lu expendable in the first place.

You mean to tell me you have never heard of Tony Robbins?? He is an inspirational life coach and president Clinton and Bush used him. Companies hire life coaches all the time to inspire employees. I don't see anything wrong with have a mentor give you wisdom and guidance.

Mental health gets such a bad wrap in this country and that is why we have tragedies occur throughout. Some times just being able to talk to someone can make a strong difference especially if your a 19 yr old kid who leaves his homeland.

Why? Nino earned his place in the draft.

To be fair, Rick never demanded a trade through his agent or whatever Nino did. I WISH HE DID. But alas, we're still stuck with him and his walker.
