I don't care where the rumors are coming from....please don't trade anybody yet. There is no point. Let the development continue. The Islanders are on pace for 208 goals, 18 better than last year, with less expensive players. the Islanders are playing a solid 40 minutes a game, they'll get acclimated to playing 60 real soon.
I'll say this now....Look out for the kids this month. It's time. They've learned the system, now it's time to execute. Watch Tamby and Okposo have breakout games against Columbus, and get that confidence to go into the Garden and really take it to the Rangers.
More time and patience is needed, but everyting will come together once the Islanders get themselves healthy.
