Josh Bailey Should Go Back To Juniors. Not Because I Don't Think He Can Hack It In The NHL. But Simply Because He Is Small And Needs To Put On More Weight(muscle) And To Continue To Develop. A Key Reason Anaheim and Detroit Are So Successful Is Because They Did Not Rush Their Potential. Let It Come Naturally. That's All I Have To Say.

Comeau should come back up and Bailey should go down to the Juniors for at least another year.Com eau and Okposo are the two young players for the future, the Isles do not have much else. They should also bring up Smith and Walter. Why Tambellini ever got a one way contract is beyond belief. Snow is a complete idiot and to prove his point he will ruin other young players careers. They are not going to make the playoffs this year and who cares lets see what they have if not next year and the year after will be the same.

If the GM Snow wants to improve this team, they must get rid of 1-Gervais who is usually on ice when the other team scores due to bad positioning, and weak D on his part, 2-Bergenheim,for skating all over the ice without any results and [see #3] 3-Tamponlinni, I call him Tamponlinni because he plays like a C__ t, about a quarter of season gone, and he hasn't scored a goal yet. Who was the idiot who signed this tool, what a waste!

Might? Not ah! Keep this kid on the team, he's racking up the assists and soon enough he'll be on a scoring spree...

Pay him and keep playing him!

Winning games = more fans in the stands!
