Taylor Pyatt

Just needed to say that I have been VERY impressed with his play thus far this season. Obviously not a flashy player but he really does all the little things along with putting up some points. Great off season acquisition by Sather.

Awesome player. Great third liner who has done more than admirably getting thrown into the top six on occasion. Was a big fan of this over the summer and I'm glad he's keeping me happy. Probably one of the best signings for all teams during the offseason, IMO. He's been that solid.

Looking a lot like Dubi, minus a few million

A big bodied heady player who both can be productive and, more importantly, just "get's it."
He is willing and able to do all the things necessary that many of our players either aren't equipped to or don't want to do(no matter what line he plays on)
Definitely a very good signing and I give credit where credit is due but we really need more guys like Pyatt on the team!

When the Isles drafted him in the top-10, Milbury came out and announced, "The Islanders are proud to select Nelson Pyatt," who is Taylor's father. He's a good player. He won't keep up the .5 ppg pace, but there's no reason he can't score 30 points as a quality two-way third liner.

He can fulfill the Alex Burrows role on Gabby's line (to an extent, of course) OR be a main fixture on any third line combo.

New York Islanders scout Earl Ingarfield announced that incorrectly.

He was a Ranger in the early 1960's, 3rd leading scorer in '62.

Have been pleasantly surprised with him. He's not quite as good as Dubinsky, but he plays a similar role like him.

He has been OK. he gets way too much PP time for my liking. He doesnt hit much but is a big body, He's been serviceable but he hasnt been disappointing or outstanding. So I guess in that regard so far, I guess he's been good.

He's tied for fourth on the team in hits at 24.

Pyatt and Callahan are players who are very important for the top lines. Like I said in the GDT last night, having 3 elite forwards together on our top line doesn't work. You need 1 player who brings some physical strength and fights for the puck while the other two make the most of the possession. Pyatt has shown he makes Nash and Richards better when he plays with the two. Cally does exactly the same.

However, Pyatt has a bit more talent as a skater compared to Callahan. Not saying Pyatt is better than Callahan, but having them as our top2 RW's, is a good way to go.

Pyatt: 3g-2a-5p in 10gp
Dubinsky: 0g-4a-4p in 11gp

Great addition by Slats, he's outproducing Dubinsky for less than half the price, and he actually utilizes his skillset correctly.

Would prefer Cally stays with Miller and Kreider.

Always seems to be on or around the puck. I've been pleasantly surprised with his play. He's been reliable and consistent. No complaints about his effort level either. Hope he keeps it up.

HE IS HORRIBLE !!! ONCE THE SHINE WEARS OFF YOU WILL SEE IT. tHE goal the islanders scored he was knocked over fell down and turned over the puck for the break out. He is the soft like one else his size in the league. He also has the worst release of a shot i have ever seen in the game thurs he was in the slot 2 times wide open and looked like a over 40 learn to play hockey guy with his release. he will be the whipping boy by March

When they signed him I wasn't overly impressed. He is off to a good start though. I don't necessarily dislike him, however I'm also not completely sold on him either. I think he's a serviceable player that has maybe overachieved in the first quarter of this season. If he keeps up the pace I'll be completely thrilled. The reality of it is I don't think he is going to keep up the pace.

10 games really a fair sample size? And especially when one of those guys is on the team with the absolute worst group of forwards in the league? I mean, Dubi was playing with Derek Dorsett for a period of time...

He seems to always make the right play and be in the right place. He keeps it simple. I really like what he's bringing to the team so far.

+1


He's a terrific addition, but I think his offensive showing thus far may have been over-achieving. He's perfectly suited toward a 3rd line, but the issue right now is that our third line, i suppose on technicality, would be the American Express, and you don't want to mess with that.

Right now we have the richards/gaborik line, the Callahan/miller/Kreider line, and whatever the hell we're trying to get Nash to score. Pyatt doesn't fit particularly well anywhere there.

He'll find his place.

Sather seems to find 1 or 2 surprises every year. And Pyatt is one
