I am pretty pumped for this game. I want to see Grabs and JT destroy the ice out there. I say Islanders win this one, and get on a big winning streak after this.

The whole Bailey line has looked much improved the last 3 games. But any glimmer of offensive pressure is a complete 180 from what they were doing the previous 7.

I am pumped for this game because of that reason alone.

I would love to see Matt Martin play with JT. He played with Stamkos right?

Yes he did, however JT and Stamkos are completely different types of players. I think Martin could become a Lucic-lite type of player, but I don't think he's ready for top line minutes. I wouldn't mind seeing a for a bit, but thats kind of throwing Martin to the wolves a bit early.

I agree, however it's hard to say that they have not played pretty good hockey lately. If Rolston was not on that line I really think Baileys and Comeau would have a few points each.

i can see that. I can also see that Rolston would have a few assists if Comeau &/or Bailey would get to the front of the net to bang home some rebounds. Then again, Rolston's shots would need to be on goal for that to happen.

It was a poorly conceived line, especially with Comeau being an on again off again physical player. I wouldn't mind seeing that Bailey & Comeau with Nino when he comes back. I'd also kill for Comeau to come streaking down the wing & just let a slapper rip. but that's another story.

Bailey has finally been split up with Comeau.

This is a good thing.

Marting goes to the net a lot and Pandolfo is a true 4th line grinder/pk specialist. This will force Bailey to simply his game and shoot more.

If Bailey shoots more, then he plays better. I would literally forbid Josh from passing the puck in the offensive zone when his chest is facing the goalie, just fire away. He needs to play a simple, simple game. He has the skills and talent to be a good NHL player, its a question of whether or not he will learn to make the effective play (and safe) vs. the sexy play (and risky).

Those stats on the Caps are unreal. 17 players with at least one goal. The next closest team has five players with at least one goal.

Does not mean much, if you look at the lines as a whole, it was 1st line and the goalie out there. The rest of the team was playing defense, no "offense" to speak of.

I've been calling for Grabner to play on a line with Tavares for nearly a year now. At first I was excited at the thought, but it's take so long that I'm more relieved now than anything else. Who knows if anything will come of it, but this is an opportunity that should have been afforded to both Tavares and Grabner, as Grabs has the one significant element Tavares (and Moulson) lack - Speed.

With Tavares' passing/vision, teams will have to be on the lookout for Grabner breaking more than ever and this can only open up the ice for JT.

It's about time.
