2 cannons from the point means the opposing defenders will be on their toes-  what defender wants to get in front of a boychuck cannon, then have to do it again with pulock? it means they will have to either let them fire away, or take away their room which will open up things down low for our forwards, and we have plenty of guys that can finish - good times islander fans -

@jrjr JB does possess a 'cannon' of a shot, but didn't utilize it often enough last season, hope he does this season.

Wow!  401 comments on Ryan Pulock!  That is frigging aweso............ oh, wait.  That's right - SNY can't figure out where to store their Knicks content from 2014.  


Oh well. At least they are at the bottom and I know once I hit the 1st one, stop scrolling.

I love this guy Pulock. Can't wait to see him on the ice in an Islanders jersey.

@puckdad99 ... That 105 mph (among other things of course) should be a very good sign of things to come.

Justin Schultz and Johnny O could be the defensive pick up we need. Both affordable.

@puckznpadz would love johnny o but i just dont see it happening.  i expect hickey to be a regular.  im not so sure id want schultz though.  his offensive game is great but his defensive game isn't so much.

@willymayshays @slapshot18_rs @puckznpadz Besides, with the trade of Sharp I would think Chicago will eventually sign Oduya.


I wouldn't mind a bigger, veteran 3rd pair guy that stays at home - but if he doesn't shake out I am OK with either Mayfield or Pulock joining Hickey.

@slapshot18_rs @puckznpadz


I think Mayfield has more upside than JO and Pulock is going to be better than anything on the market at the moment.  I have 0 problems sticking with what we have.  If another Leddy or Boychuck deal is there to be had obviously you go for it.

@puckznpadz 

I'm not that big on Oduya. He really isn't that good.

I'd rather get Ehrhoff, and we won't have to give up anything for him.

Hey  blog people  get your act together, its been long enough for correcting this nonsense.

@jethrono9 perhaps we should all agree to start making our islander comments on the knicks' blog on August 1st if the islander blog is not knick free by then?

@clark_9 ... Haha! That is a great idea.

No disrespect intended to you or any particular individual. I apologize if I didn't communicate that clearly. Over the course of my professional life, I just haven't had many wonderful impressions of govt bureaucrats, and tons of negative ones.


A simple problem that the tech guys here are "working on" for years without resolution reminds me of many answers we hear from govt officials.

puckdad99

@jethrono9 

And there's other problems with the site too. Three years ago, in response to an email I sent them, their answer was, "We're working on it."

I guess these folks all have govt jobs during the day, where you don't have to perform and still stay employed, get raises, get gold-plated benefits, and have air-tight job security.

@clark_9 @jethrono9 Clark, it's not like Knick fans are deliberately posting in here, it's all on the people who run this blog, it is their responsibility and culpabiity to get it corrected,  or perhaps give up to blog to more competent, and professional people.

@jethrono9 @clark_9 

Exactly. No point in annoying or seeking revenge against the Knicks fans, it's not their fault that their posts from two years ago are showing up here.

@jethrono9 @clark_9 understood jethro...i realize the comments are old. simply trying to create some urgency on behalf of those who manage the blog, because patience has not been an effective strategy. we agree.

@jethrono9 @clark_9 The problem is, they aren't even current comments.  They are from 2014 - LOL!  It almost feels like each blog has a server, and they decided to store the 2014 Knicks content on the IPB server.

@puckdad99 ... My brother is a government employee and works very hard for considerably less pay than what he would make in the private sector, because he loves his job. I was a gov't employee too, and worked for the City with many good, hardworking people who got terrible pay for tedious jobs. Sorry, maybe im overly sensitive, but I just had to get that off my chest.

That said, the "We're working on it" line is such a joke. How does this comment crossover even happen in the first place!? I've never seen this on a blog before.

@puckdad99 ... No worries. Thanks for your last comment though. I just hate the stereotype, because you're right about the bureaucracy being the problem. The government process is so often a mess and makes good people look bad.

Woodson being fired would give us more hope than being in the Playoffs 

Mike Jones

were going to need at least 10 wins , to make playoffs at the rate of the remaining games left , so we have to win every other game at this point

Is it really possible for Murry to play worse than Felton

@Seth Nadler  It's not. We have been watching Felton play atrocious all season and he continues to play 30+ minutes.
