This is more like the Poulin of 2010-11. I have high hopes for him and Nilsson as our goalies of the future.

Plus, if he gets 30-35 starts next season (If Nabby re-signs), I think he can be even better than his last 2 starts. Goalies need to play more often than every 2 weeks to stay consistent.
The team has to adjust too much for him. His rebound control is attrocious. Last loss was not his fault, he was good enough, but generally speaking he has a big hole in his complete game.

I am with Redbull. Until we get our goalting prodigy, go with proven consistent vets.

Some of the names set to be on the market after the 13-14 season are Hiller, Miller, Kiprusoff, Crawford, Giguere, Vokoun, Halak, Elliot, and of course Lundqvist. Obviously most of these guys will be locked up by that time, but chances are a couple will sneak through to UFA. Depending on who they are, we could either get our long term answer or a solid stop-gap until Fucale is ready.

Best case scenario though would be one of Poulin/Nilsson establishing themselves next year as Nabby's backup.
I've got a gut feeling we will draft Fucale, but I think he may go higher than expected. Many teams looking for better goaltending for their future.

fucale seems like a while away. i would like someone young, but realistically in net in 2-3 years.

That said, I hope he goes after Bernier. I don't think he will, but I hope. If Poulin continues to develop, too many goalies is a problem I wouldn't mind having. I hope we have too many players at every position in a couple of years.
Right price? That's how you repay the goalie that brought the isles to the playoffs in 7 years and essentially stopped the DP charade.

Nabby should be brought back on a 2 year deal at fair market value

We get Bernier, I buy his jersey the next day. Well worth the 1st rounder plus it would cost. The Kings and Isles are ideal for this kind of deal. Get it done Garth!

The Isles currently have the rights to Thomas. Not sure if the contract was tolled along with the trade (I know the Bruins tolled it). If he signs I'm sure the Isles goal problems have an immediate solution.


I'd be more worried about a potential early playoff exit. There's no way the Rags and Sens lose in regulation (especially twice for the Sens)

my prediction
Game 1- Pens 6- Isles 1
Game 2 Pens 6- Isles 0
Game 3 Pens 5 Isles 0
Game 4 Pens 7 Isles 1

getting into the playoffs just bomb out in first four games is pathetic

Thomas is already signed. He has a contract with us.

The question is whether or not he wants to play in the NHL again.

So you think we'll get swept by Pittsburgh and outscored 24-2 in the series?

Tell you what.. if we get outscored by 22 goals, I'll never post here ever again.. but if we don't get outscored by 22 goals - from now on you promise to re-read everything you type twice before submitting your posts..

Tired of the negative posts, talk about pathetic.

Devils can beat the Rangers in regulation. They're an angry team and the Rangers are the ones who eliminated them.

So the Pens will sweep the Isles and outscore them 24-2 huh... hope you don't watch with your negative energy if that's the matchup, sheesh.

If I am not mistaken Thomas is signed until the end of this season. I know the Bruins tolled his contract. The question is does that toll automatically transfer over to the Isles or if the Isles tolled it separately.

True there's the issue if he wants to return I'm wondering what happens if he does (last I heard he wanted to take a year off not take a year off and then decide his options)

The Isles aren't going to score more than 2 a game on Fleury- I have a gut feeling. The Pens beat the Isles with 3 or 4 regulars out of the line up. Imagine what would the result be against a souped up Penguins team. I hear Crosby could be back for game one

If the Isles win at least one game I'll keep my posts restricted to the Predators thread when it comes to teams.

the Isles choose a poor time to start to stumble. They peaked out sometime during the Capitals game. It's bad form to start losing games at the end of the season. scoring 2 goals in two games and being gifted on both of them. doesn't really spell inspiration. That and their track record against the Penguins I'd say they have their work cut out for 'em.

every way I look at it they're not going to score more than 2 and are going to give up at least 4. Unless they pull off a Swiss maneuver from 2 Olympics ago. considering the potential wild cards and x-factors I get my overblown way out of proportion numbers

I've been on the Bernier wagon for MONTHS! dude wants out of LA. Has great #'s, he's young and has shown he can be a good goalie in the NHL.

The contract can be tolled in to perpetuity.. But the NHL has said the cap hit cannot be tolled any further.

Which makes sense..

If all a player had to do was sit out a season to have their contract nullified, that would create a terrible scenario... and at the same time, teams are not able to carry the cap hit year after year just to circumvent the cap floor..
