The Rant

Lets start off with the goaltending. I hope that the Isles can get Nabokov resigned.In my opinion he was a much bigger contributor to the Sharks success than he was given credit for. And as has been widely speculated Montoya is unlikely to be back next year. On to the defense. Should he Staios or should he go? No matter if players like Eaton or Jurcina are traded at the deadline they along with Staios (a player I have always liked but has reached his best before date) and Mottau should not be back next year. It's time for deHaan,Ness,Donovan and Katic be given a serious look to make the team next year. Also maybe the Isles should make a pitch for Komisarek. Considering his contract the price will not be steep and they might be able to dump one of their own unwanted players in the process. Up front I do not agree with Nino being in the NHL. The NHL is not a daycare if he is not ready than he should be in Portland. I know this method has not worked out well for Detroit and before that the 1970's Montreal Canadiens as their overwhelming patience has stunted the development of many of their players. Yesterday after the game Cappy talked about a lack of pushback. Well for me that started back in game 1 against Florida. It reminds me of something Cris Carter said recently about Randy Moss. Something about his quit mechanism. The Isles also have a large quit mechanism when things are not going well.They have as much quit in them as a factory worker during shift change. They can't get out of there fast enough. As far as the plyoffs go they have as much chance of getting in this year as I have of getting a date with Amy Lee of Evanescence. Josh Bailey as a core player? I have no doubt he will be a 50 goal scorer in this league in a year or two. He is already at 40 at the time of this writing. And going off the rails here a little bit but when Kosuke Fukudome went from the Cubs to the White Sox it reminded me of a certain Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer. Well thats all for now because they telling me it's time to go back in my cage.
