Yeah, I have been saying the same thing, there are a lot of Met/Islander correlations but none more telling than Pelfrey/Comeau. I think the Mets will finally give up on Pelfrey this year. Comeau can't ruin a game like Pelfrey can, but they can fool you.

I do think Comeau is sitting as a result of "who else to sit for toughness" Gillies is needed for intimidation after the first 3 games where guys were getting ambushed late in the game.

There are only 4 centers on the roster, so Bailey can't sit

Reasoner and Pandolofo are PK specialists

You have to suit up 6 dmen and 2 goalies

Rolston is on the PP

Martin is toughness.

The other 4 wingers are

a) 2 30 goal scorers
b) PAP (top assist man in the league)
c) Okposo, who is on the PK and PP, and is the heart of the team in some way.

I like Comeau a lot, but I think he is going to end up in Calgary very soon as Calgary might want to shed a big salary to us like JayBo, but who knows. We get an injury on the wing and Comeau will be a fixture nightly again.

Doesn't take much to connect the dots here.

You can just see the difference between Bailey and Comeau, Bailey has been doing more and skating like he's doing whatever he can for the team - it's just not there for him right now. Comeau on the other hand, seems to trail the play, steps behind, bad decisions ect.

Honestly, I am happy that Capuano has the foresight to call out his players and hold them accountable when it's warranted. While Gordon had his dog house, it wasn't always the right reasons or even the right times.

I disagree about Bailey, he has been a passenger for the most part too, just have to suit up 4 centers, so he lucks out.

Arthur staple has a post up on newsday:

Quote:
"Obviously you want to be in the lineup every night. It's tough watching," said Comeau, who skated with injured D Milan Jurcina, backup G Evgeni Nabokov and third G Rick DiPietro this morning. "I just have to stay as positive as I can and see what happens."

Comeau said he and assistant coach Doug Weight had a private conversation this morning to help clarify Comeau's situation.

"He just told me to keep working hard in practice and that the coaching staff has all the faith in the world in me," he said. "This is just the way it is right now."

I wish we can package Comeau and Bailey for a top Dman.. Call LA and throw in Okposo as well for Doughty.

That would deplete the roster too much. The Isles don't have that much NHL ready depth. Unless you want to pack it in for Nail.

I'm just waiting for someone to defend Bailey with, "He broke up the play in front of the empty net." - But I guess since it resulted in the 4th goal, it's a tough argument.

At least Okposo shows you something. The guy's got passion. But Bailey is the consumate floater. I'd love to hear the news he's been traded in about 3 minutes.

we can't point to one "okay" play and be happy about it. I saw some nice things from Bailey at times, couple of nice plays on rushes, some good effort...but also some bonehead plays. He needs to be better.

But I like him as a player. I wouldn't give up on him, but I would have surrounded him (and other young players) with better NHL talent around them. But that's another story.

Comeau was circling with the hot dogs and coughed up beer all night. He passed the food down alright and all but he wasn't hitting the bathroom once all night. He's a bum. Trade his 24 goals for a 10 goal scorer or something.

Or Bailey. he sucks too. Ketchup on hot dogs all last year.

His name should be Blake Comeaunov. Then it would make sense because he would be an enigmatic Russian.

He'll eventually go on waivers or in a draft pick. Then Bailey 3 years from now when he is the same age it will be the same deal.

These two are the present day Andy Hilberts, Jon Sim and the like.

Jack Capuano says Blake Comeau will be back in tomorrow vs. Panthers, back at his natural LW spot. #Isles
Hopefully comes back and has one of his streaks.

What kind of value are you guys expecting should Comeau be traded? More specifically, what from the Avs would get him? Roster player (Kobasew+)? Prospect (Gaunce+)? Pick?

I ask because the Avs need a LW (Mueller's got head issues again) to play with Duchene. He's been underwhelming this season thus far and needs a spark. (Was demoted to 4th line winger on Saturday, played 2nd fewest minutes among all skaters.)

This is awesome. A bunch of these players we were counting as cornerstones for a "rebuild" are not young and developing, they just suck.

No one gives a crap if we get players via a draft, free agency or immaculate acquisition. We all just want to win.

I think the end result will be Comeau moved for a defensemen. I would think that sending him or Bailey to Carolina for Bryan Allen would easily help both teams.
