They have to be careful about getting into any more OT games. There are no points for just making it to OT like in hockey.

Ullstrom not in the lineup again? We don't care about winning we just want to show off some players(Reasoner, Okposo) so we can trade them.

They're better off scratching Okposo if they wanna trade him..we don't want teams seeing how terrible he is.

nice GDT Trumanperro.

No Ullstrom again? Not like it will make a great deal of difference but for the sake of all that is right can Cappy show Okposo a seat in the press box!!!
Starting to feel like this guy.... Remain calm!!!

Even if they are, wouldn't you think every other GM know's Okposo's game by now? I just love in Cappy's post game interview's when he say's in frustration there are not a lot of moves he can make, and then make zero moves?!?!?

And Cap is still the coach. And Reasoner is playing. And Finley is playing. And no moves are being made.

I've kind of given up at this point on the season. All welcome Jones/MacKinnon/Druin/Barkov.

Staple said in his online chat that a few teams have called about Okposo but the offers were pretty bad that it wasn't worth trading him for nothing when you consider that there's still a chance he wakes up and plays better.

I think Okposo should sit, I repeat I think Okposo should sit he's been awful.

As much as many of us would love for him to be traded it's not happening unless they can get some value back. Realistically this team is too invested into him to just trade him off for peanuts, I think he's going to be on this team for entire season there's really no way getting around that. After that who knows, if he continues to struggle perhaps they will trade him for nothing and hey anythings possible we might even start hearing amnesty buy out (probably from us fans more than anywhere else).

Just knowing how this team functions I believe he's going to be around for a while.

I keep checking Twitter, waiting to see any of Capuano being fired, O'Reilly traded for, Nino/Nelson called up.

Unfortunately I continue to be disappointed.

Something I've noticed, and something others have mentioned, is the amount of "crest" shots the Isles take. Yes, some are hurried so the aiming might be a little rushed, but there are so many times I'm thinking, "Put that shot on the ice!" Don't low shots result in more rebounds? I see another Isle streaking to the net and a low shot isn't taken. Low shots = more rebounds, right? Wouldn't you want a rebound when a teammate is heading to the net?

I do the same. I'm going to do my best to stop.

Hey all, I've been lurking on this board for about a while. Always got a kick out of the GDT's so thought I would make an account and post. I'm 22 and have been an Isles fan most of my life. Haven't had much to cheer about though.

Would be nice to see a win against the top team in conference.

gotta say...after watching the last 2-3 games I'm just not very hyped to watch this team play anymore.

Those losses seemed to have sucked the life out of them (and me). Team needs a spark.... something...anything to get them motivated again.

4-1 Habs Win

Ullstrom's not played that well of late. I think his combination of size, speed and tenacious forechecking is something Capuano should absolutely have in the lineup as much as possible, especially against a fiesty team like MTL. He's like Bergenheim, but bigger. I don't understand why he's not in the lineup, especially given the fact that Reasoner's on a frkn line with Bailey and KO.

same here. I'm regretting the centre ice package already, except i get to watch other teams play a lot and see how gigantic the gap is, from what Snow and Wang have built. Good thing Tavares doesn't watch other teams play, he'd be pisstt!
