    Highly doubt Wahlstrom was anywhere involved in this conversation

    It's not even that their roster is better. They have a better coach, plain and simple.

    I'm not sure Trotz and this roster would mix well.

    Me either. Trotz's ideal player was Jay Beagle.

    They have a better coach than pretty much anyone, though.

    Rangers have a world class HC on the staff, and he's already made an impact, it's just not This Charming Man.

    I do agree with what Pete said in another thread though. Zibanejad having COVID, Panarinís issues in Russia, and Shesterkinís injuries derailed our season. When none of those played a factor, weíve been more good than bad

    True. If not for those factors, Rangers would very likely be in a close dogfight with BOS for the last playoff spot. But that's still just regular season results. I'm not convinced the same Rangers would be as good at playoff hockey. The Islanders on the other hand, while they are God awful boring to watch, are built to win tight playoff series.

    Islanders were two games away from making the finals last year and are a better, more experienced team this year. It sucks lol

    I'm surprised that the Devils were not able to get more. The only thing they got was a late first round pick. Two AHL players, ages 24 and 27, who don't even qualify as prospects, and a fourth round pick amount to absolutely nothing in addition to the first rounder. For this the Islanders not only got two guys who can play, if a bit past their primes, but also 50% retention.

    I'm pissed. The Islanders really helped themselves. The new environment may be enough to charge these two up a bit and make them quite useful for the rest of the season. I can only hope that Uncle Larry writes a Palmieri as the new Butch Goring column blah, blah, blah, and he turns out to do nothing for them.

    2 AHL nobodies, the Devils pick up half the salaries and get a late probably 25th or later 1st rounder for 2 players who figure to give the Isles 2/3rd of a 2nd line with Lee down. Both will be PP and PK guys. Sorry, the Devils got raped, and willingly. If they didn't get Whalstrom, this deal is a joke . Good for the Isles GM who happens to be your former club president/GM.

    Isles have the best coach, but remains to be seen if they're good enough in goal.

    Let’s not make it sound like Trotz just kills offense.
    Ovechkin scored 185 in 4 years, twice 50 and 53 under Trotz. Backstrom averaged close to 80 points in those 4 years. The year they won Carlson had 68 points and Kuznetsov 83 points and were 9th in the league in goals scored. He doesn’t make every player he touches into some offensive void.

    Four years behind the bench for them goals for were
    7th
    2nd
    3rd
    9th

    He’s just a good coach that can look at a roster and adjust to the roster he has. Anyway, this isn’t a thread about saying we should have Trotz because it’s irrelevant. To say he wouldn’t do well with our team seems a bit strange though, but I personally think there are quite a few coaches that would do better with our team as well.
