    ^Agree 100%

    And **** this. Mathematically eliminated with 4 games left. Thats a hell of a lot better than the last 4 seasons, right?

    ^it's not really .500 though
    right now the isles are 33-35-11. to me that's 13 games under .500.
    the teams like the sharks who are 40-29-10 are closer to what a .500 team is.

    I agree that's how I look at it
    If we had the 3 point system we would be close to Columbus
    And you want to win the lottery, we could always trade down

    ^That's BS. .500 is when yo have 82 points in 82 games. Enough of this other way of looking at it. it's not how it is, NHL .500 is when the first 2 columns of he W-L-OTL are the same.

    The 3 point system everyone talks about is dumb.

    It should be 3 points for a regulation win or OT win. 2 points for a shootout win. 1 point for an OT or shootout loss, 0 points for a regulation loss.

    ^ "NHL .500 and the loser points make fans of **** teams like the islanders feel like they actually had a good season when they clearly didn't. If you want to believe that the isles are .500 when they end the season with 11 more total loses than wins go ahead.

    And btw I agree with you about the point system needs to be changed to 3 points for a regulation win. I've been complaining about that ever since the loser point came into existence.

    ^A defenseman. Murray, Trouba, Dumba, Rielly, and Reinhardt are the 4 best in the draft. ANy of them would help If we end up with.

    Ryan Murray si certainly the best, gonna eb a great offensive defenseman but he isnt small or bad defensively either. Maybe the only deenseman in the draft that has legit #1 potential imo.

    Of the rest, I think Dumba may be the next best "ryan murray" but at the same time, Griffin Reinhardt is a great fit though, and may be best suited to be a #2 on this team 5 years down the road. He's big, 6'4 200, will prob play around 220 in the NHL, maybe more, and he's got skills. He's mobile ad has a great shot, but he's also big and uses that to his advantage, as he's a very good defensive player and doesn't hesitate to take the body. Remember Scotty Mayfield who we drafted in the 2nd round last year? Very similar player, but this guy has more potential I would say. Mayfield may never score 25-30+ points in the NHL, and is more suited for a #4 dman on a team, while Reinhardt could be a consistent 35-40+ point defenseman who's gonna help the defensive cause ahell of a lot.

    If we get the 4th or 5th pick, Im all for trading down 2 or 3 and taking Reinhardt if any teas are willing to budge... that is, if Ryan Murray isnt available. i think Murray is the best dman in the draft and wed be ******** not to take him if he was there.

    Just so you know
    Reinhart also has a "wishart" tag, he may be big but doesn't always utilize his mean streak of big body
    So I'd go

    Murray, dumba, Cecil, Reinhart, trouba
