Time to move on!!

I don’t know about the rest of you fans, but I think it is time to forget about Vinny and time to look elsewhere. As much as he would have been nice to have and may have helped attract other UFA’s, Philly has just pushed his price even higher after over paying for a 34 year old Pronger.
I think that trade may have put a lot of potential trades on hold. The only thing possibly working in Gainey’s favour would be that at least one of the owners in Tampa wants to spend to the cap floor. Which owner will get his way?

Can Tavares bring change to the Island?

Now that John Tavares is wearing the orange and blue what changes are in store for the Isles?

July 1st is right around the bend and the isles first off need a backup goalie. Being a backup behind DiPietro means a lot of ice time so I don’t think they will have a problem finding a good backup. More than likely who ever we get as a backup is going to be our #1 guy. I have a feeling DP might not ever recover from his knee and hip surgeries.
