Over the offseason we lost key players including Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen, and Matt Martin. Okposo was a great wing with Tavares. As this situation was bad enough, Isles fans were comforted a little bit when we got Andrew Ladd. But with his performances this season, he is equivalent to Brian Strait. We NEED him to perform well with Tavares because obviously with our 4-6-2 record, we need help, BIG TIME!
