You wouldn't see the Sedins as guys who would be doing that either but they do when they need to. It would be more playing stronger along the boards and in front of the net and learning how to forecheck.

Well, people speculated that since Boyes wasn't resigned. Doesn't mean it's true. Okposo was pretty much given the gig right from the beginning, which leads me to believe that was the Isles intention all along and that PMB was brought in as depth/utility.

Small French-Canadian forward? I know exactly who's claiming him.

Yes. Pointblank has already reported that Strome is being brought up.

Bouchard was in preseason. It sucked. Okposo took over and they never looked back.

Hate to see something like this happen to such a genuinely good person, but he just can't cut it as a player anymore. He might actually make a decent coach someday.

He's still creating scoring chances, though. One of the few Islanders that is able to do that on his own, so PMB could be a good claim for a team that needs his specific skill set.

If he's claimed, it would free some money in the Islanders internal budget to hire a new coach or take a higher salary in a trade.

Agreed. If he still wants to play I can see him heading overseas to play on the big ice in a less physical league to show his skill.

Too bad for him. I was hoping he could turn it around in New York. I'll be surprised honestly if he is claimed. North American hockey is not for the timid, and PMB is rightfully gunshy.

OT, but really sorry to hear a young person like you is going through this. You're supposed to be an old guy like me when your health kicks in.

I got my first concussion playing high school ice hockey. I played in college too, but did not have any further problems.

At the start if training camp, Bouchard was put on Tavares wing. He played himself off that line.

Kind of hard to play yourself off a line in one preseason game. To play yourself off a line presumes you actually get a real shot at it. He didn't. He was never going to play there with Moulson on the other wing.

PMB on the other hand wasn't producing and not great in his own zone either, plus he makes more money.

Strome is gonna be a good one. Potential to steal the Calder from Hertl.
You spelt Torey Krug wrong

I imagine if PMB sustains another one his career is over.
