This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

They are going after Artemi by DBCooper
And it looks like if they are able to get him it will be hard to keep Lee as well. I don’t think they want to give Lee as long a contract as he wants. At his age and the way he plays there is a lot of stats that show once over 30 the abilities immediately fall. I doubt they get Panarin and hopefully Lee gets signed. I hate to lose a captain 2 years in a row.
Eberle was not a priority over Lee, just an easier guy to sign and they desperately needed to sign a winger. Eberle signed for under market so it made it easier.
On Lehner it’s starting to look like he may not stay, which sucks. Doesn’t look like islanders want to give him 5 million. I still expect this to be negotiations but I also thought he would have been signed by now.
Isles also seriously thinking about Marner
