    JT would play with Zuccarello.

    Tavares has played with some "talented" guys, Eberle now, Schremp, Okposo, Nielsen
    other playmakers like Parenteau, Kuleman, Grabovski,

    Yeah, I'd imagine the line would be JT - JT - Zucc.

    Eberle plays with Barzal. Tavares plays with Lee and Bailey. The only one of those Isles or ex-Isles that put up multiple 50-60 point seasons without Tavares is Grabovski, but he didn't have great numbers on the Isles. I'd say Okposo is the best winger he's had on the Isles, but based off what Okposo has done in Buffalo, I'd say Miller is better.

    There's no way Kreider wouldn't be on JT's wing. He's the exact type of player that thrives with JT. Moulson, Okposo, Lee...

    Yup. Kreider, Tavares, Zucc. That's how I start off.

    I truly feel like the “microscope of NY” is only for guys on this board. The NYR will get a back page 3 or 4 times a year and sports radio can’t be bothered with Hockey. Literally no one cares so long as the Knicks are relevant. The jets and giants/ Yankees and Mets will always take priority. In fact, I’d venture to say the average NY sports fan would rather watch any MNF or TNF game over a Rangers/islanders game.

    Case and point. The girl I make small talk with every morning in the bagel store would talk to me about Carmelo Anthony and baseball based on just pop culture. The bagel store is on 8th Ave and 53rd. For a while, Henrik Lundqvist lived 100 yards away at 301 West 52nd Street. He would come in there from time to time. She knew I was a big Hockey fan. She didn’t know who he was or where to even make small talk about Hockey lol.

    Long story short, the image of NYC as this daunting media frenzy venue is truly a fallacy IMO

    More writers/reporters in NY, and still more eyes, regardless of how far down it is on the totem pole

    Kreider and Buchnevich have too much chemistry to break up. If some how we get Tavares I put him in between the two of them.

    I think it's Zib that makes those two go, but yea, I'd do this as well.

    Compared to the other sports in the city, yes. Compared to other NHL markets, its not. Especially ones where the media don't hold the team or players to the fire. Just ask Dan Boyle.
