Quote: Anthony on loss to the Hawks

Like this pick .Watched Him play,this kid is tough and gritty like his uncle.This kid will be the biggest surprise for the Islanders He can flat out play.

@justin m @truth77 He will if he has too.People seem to forget He paired with the Russian that went early in the draft.His role was to to protect and let the Russian show his offensive skills.Given the chance this kid will put up much better offensive numbers.He is a good skater and is already sound defensively.

Looks like a good value pick at this position

Misses bragging rights over cousin Rich by a mere 4 picks.

I absolutely LOVED Richie PILON!!! If he is even close to his uncle, we are in good shape!...Gotta fish my Pilon jersey out of the closet!!

Freaking love this! Cousin of Rich. One of toy favorite Isles of all time. If you have the stomach for it, watch the disgusting hit of Hunter on Turgeon. Who comes flying in after Hunter? The one and only Richie Pilon. Also, his accidental hit on Kevin Stevens was pivotal in 1993 Game 7 vs Pit.

Keith Jones didn't know who Rich Pilon was. He saw he was wearing a visor, picked a fight with him, and got his anal passage handed to him. One of his teammates asked, "What the hell are you doing?" - Keith Jones had not idea why he was wearing a visor and mistook him for a wuss.... he was kind of wrong.

Obviously, we will need to wait and see, but it looks like the Isles have gotten a lot of value in this draft.

@Mike T. I agree Mike.  If the Islanders traded Reinhart only if this kid Barzel was still on the board they must of thought a lot of him.

He was expected to go Top 10.

In a more normal, less competitive draft year, he may well have gone Top 5.

@Joey Ferguson we drafted 2 last year, and 2 the year before...koskinnen still in russia...we definitely need a good back up, but probably makes sense to just stick to drafting best player available

We need a backup goalie now, not in three years. I have a feeling that Snow will buy us something in the next three months.

Son of the Chief( okay Nephew)..


Snow has his list of players, and where he likes them. If one of the guys on his list falls a long way- he has no fear of trading up to draft a player he feels is being under rated. This kid fell a long way, Snow and the staff believe in him- so they went and got him..


Guy believes in his scouts, and the process. 


He is 6'2"--well IQ33 will be disappointed. He writes Snow only drafts small players( like Reinhart, Pullock, Mayfield..)

@Joey Ferguson Not happening? For a fifth round pick or worse- why bother unless your dumping salary- and only dumping salary..


Local press here in Denver had O'Reilly demanding $8/ million a season for 8 years.. Wonder if the Sabres meet that price..

Joey Ferguson

sabres need to get to the cap floor so yes he gets it. jot worth it. but not worth 8 mil.

The Knicks have lost games since Pre-Season and in the same way, over and over again. 

Shame they can't or won't find anyone brave, desperate, or dumb enough, to come and coach this "team" for the rest of the season. LOL


Melo is gone at the end of this season and The Knicks will have nothing in the wake of his departure. Only failure for years to come. What a huge waste  of our time this has all been. F'k Dolan, The Knicks and the entire organization. They don't deserve the loyalty and or money the fan base have given them. For which, I personally given them thousands.


Last year, was the best year I had in decades. I'm not going to wait every 20 years for something magical to happen. Another 40 for an NBA championship.

From this day forth, I pledge to crap on The Knicks until, at the minimum, they get to the ECF. Period. NOTHING or no record will be good enough until then and that's the way it should be from all of the fans. The most celebrated team in the NBA, is nothing more a multi-billion dollar marketing scam. The Knicks don't deserve our love. Win a F'n title you bums. Hell, win a F'n game. 


It's hard to fathom this season will end well and doesn't seem unreasonable for me to call it a wrap. So I will. This one is done. 


I overwhelmingly suggest to go out and enjoy yourselves. 

The Knicks have wasted enough of your time.

Sucks to say this as a huge Melo fan since college, but WoodRow has no idea how to use him, as coach K did in the Olympics, which was pretty much catch and shoot.... WoodRow musta been busy listening to guitar Jimmy's cd, and didn't toon into the Olympic Games....... For this, I'm starting to feel Melo is a goner:(

Melo never looks for the open guy. Come on sun. And Tyson has 14mill with no offensive moves but an alley-oop...hurts to be a fan right now

Kvdaone

Stars get paid to make plays, not just baskets. Draw the double team on purpose and look for the open man!!

Kvdaone

Melo needs to pass the ball and go to the hole. If you know the team statistics, why do you keep playin the same way? Make the game easy by passing and taking the high % shot....Jesus Shuttleswworth

I can't believe that i keep WATCHING!!! What's wrong with me? There's a difference between being a loyal fan and just a glutton for punishment. They go out of their way to find new angles to losing. It is depressing. Woodsen's substitution continue to confound and confuse me. The 4th Quarter is all that matters and they just fade and choke. It truly seems there is a dark cloud over this team - scouts at the game to look over Shumpert and he hits a sweat patch on the floor and hurts his knee. Boom. No trade at the deadline. Sheesh. Please - someone hire a gypsy woman and reverse this curse asap!

The Knicks problem is they build a lead with ball movement, and once they have it every starts going one on one trying to pad their stats and they slowly loose the game…..game management just another thing Woodson doesn't understand

Instead of "they" you probably mean to say Melo...

Im pretty sure we have had more denver fans tuning into our games than knicks fans lately. Sad.

"same way over and over" translation, the other team scores every single possession down he stretch of games.

@Knicks_Fanatic  We're completely fckd.

The season is officially over.

The team has quit on Woodson, Woodson has turned into the worst coach in the NBA.

We've become a laughingstock once again.


What a waste of a decent roster that could've made the playoffs.

This is so sad by so many different account....

Just a sad, embarassing season.


Just when I was forgetting what it meant to be laughingstock...it's back all over again.

It would be the ultimate irony if these two ring wearing, bearing veterans make it to the playoffs and we don't.

@Knicks_Fanatic  You can place money on the fact that they will get a strong chance to fight for one while our team enjoys watching the playoffs on TV.

Sirius/XM NBA channel had a San Antonio reporter on and he said the Spurs need a SF to replace Leonard. He thought either Granger or MWP would be looked at, if Austin Daye doesn't mess.
