  4. he said he would not play for garth snow,lou has talked to him 2020 looks good for him. New York Islanders General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, has spoken with Ilya Sorokin and he’s excited about playing in the NHL. Since being drafted in 2014, Ilya Sorokin has been what some would call a “White Whale” for the New York Islanders. He was selected in the third round but the Islanders knew he would be staying in the KHL for the foreseeable future. His coming out party was 2015-2016 when he put on an absolute clinic as a 20-year-old in the KHL. He had a .953 save percentage and a 1.06 goals against average. That’s something you see in a video game. Sorokin could’ve came to the US in 2017 but he instead decided to re-sign with his KHL team for three more years. At that point Sorokin seemed like a lost cause, but that could’ve changed with the hiring of Lamoriello. According to NHL.com Lou Lamoriello has spoken with Sorokin himself. “I’ve talked to him myself, and he’s excited about coming to the National Hockey League,” Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello said. “I know that he was free to come (in 2017) and then re-signed. There’s always different reasons why people do it, but I’m comfortable at the conversation I’ve had with him, and also his representative. We look forward to getting him sometime along the way here.” Well, that seemed to come out of the blue. If you remember not too long ago a report from a Russian writer came out that Ilya Sorokin wanted no part of Garth Snow. Can’t say I blame the kid there. Now with Lou Lamoriello, Barry Trotz, and Mitch Korn, Sorokin seems genuinely interested in coming over here, which would likely be in 2020 when his KHL deal is up. The Islanders could use a goalie of the future, and Sorokin might just be that guy in two years.
  5. The New York Islanders talented goalie prospect picked up where he left off with a shutout to open up the 2018-2019 season in the KHL. Ilya Sorokin is one of the most talked about New York Islanders prospects and for good reason. Since being selected in the third round of the 2014 NHL Draft, Sorokin has dominated in the KHL as a goalie. The 23-year-old, now in his fifth year playing in the KHL started his season off with a shutout last night. He only faced 16 shots but he was perfect in the opener for CSKA Moscow as they begin the season with a win and a strong performance from their star netminder. In 37 games last season, Sorokin had a .931 save percentage and a 1.59 goals against average. Those are impressive numbers but it’s nowhere close to his best year. Ilya burst onto the scene in 2015-2016 when he had a .953 save percentage and a 1.06 goals against average. Yes, the KHL competition is different from the NHL but the talent is clearly there with Ilya Sorokin. The thought of Sorokin in a blue and orange sweater was once a pipedream but now with Mitch Korn in the building, it’s seeming like a possibility.
  6. On Monday, the Islanders named former AHL coach/possible wine magnate, shoe designer or racecar driver Piero Greco as their NHL goaltending coach, leading some to wonder if Korn was still a possibility. I guess the answer is yes. We’ll learn more about Korn’s role and responsibilities as the weeks roll on, but as Dom pointed out in that article, he had wanted to lighten his travel load with the Caps last season. We’ll assume he and Greco will work out some kind of schedule or something at some point. Chris Terreri remains the team’s AHL goalie coach. [Hidden Content]
  7. isles sorokin will most likely never come to the nhl.
  8. They dont need JT they got barzal
  9. slanders sign goaltender Robin Lehner to one-year deal
  10. making the isl wait for sr.jt is screwing up there chances at ufa,s so even if he comes back he lost all credibility with the fan base.
  11. There is no way JT goes to montreal he wants to win a cup and the habs are a disaster ,and with the rise of some young guns,and a new GM how will bring in a goalie and beef up the defence JT stays put in my oponion ,another 3rd liner to replace nelson or isles fan pray Ladd gets shipped off somewhere then a contender they may be with proper coaching and maybe kolvochuck (rumor) and a real goalie they have a chance they also have the biggest cap room to improve.I say they trade there 1st round picks this year for goalie or a few dman and with soderstrom in the AHL as well as bellows and if sorokin ever plays here this teams future looks good.
  12. i think i would do that to get rid of him....lol
  13. He gets a bad rap i would love for barzal to feed him the puck on line 2 all game long.
