[Signing] Islanders re-sign Scott Mayfield


Recommended Posts

7 year deal? Interesting. He's 30 years old, so this'll bring him to 37. They also have Dobson and Pulock on the right side. Pelech and Romanov already on the left. They just gonna dump all their cap in having 3 top 4 D pairs and a top 3 goalie? Lol. We don't need to score a lot, just one more than you.

Lou is playing 4D chess here.  He knows he is old enough to not be alive by the time all

these long term contracts are complete anchors.

He said that straight up on air when he acquired Horvat

Literally.  Lamoriello says he's a goal differential type of guy where just need to score 1 more goal than the opponent.  He again insists that they'll win by playing defence.

 

A contrast to former NYI coach Trotz who wants to build an offensive team in Nashville.  He explains that he got this defensive reputation because he had to coach the roster he was given.  He's pretty much implying that in NYI there wasn't enough offence on the roster so the way to coach/win was to play defence.

NYI locking up players for a long time, let's see if it works for them or not. Lot of young guys to be fair but Mayfield is 30 and will be 37 at the end of this. I guess physical defencemen seem to be playing longer and longer these days for some reason? I do like the idea of locking down your core forever to help them gel and bond together. Would be nice to see Allvin lock down Petey and Hronek next, a lot of our wingers have short to medium-term contracts but of course we're going to see which one of them ends up part of our core going forwards. Most of our remaining contracts are like 2-3 years, but obviously we've been burned recently with the long deals.

 

Got to be jealous of that top-4 though. I know ours looks a lot better now, but wow, that top-4 defence isn't going to change for at least 5 years. 3 absolute rocks at RD. Not sure who's going to play all the minutes when they've basically got three guys who should be at 22-23 minutes a night at RD. Dobson -> Pulock -> Mayfield is probably the best RD depth in the league.
