    I had a chance to see a few Islander games at the Icejam, I was there checking up on a hand full of 2000 born kids observed at last year's tournament. McWilliams, McGregor, Macaulay and Palmer. I must say the team shows much improvement since the Monctonian , but it's not enough. McWilliams and Palmer were disappointing to say the least, McWilliams struggled on D and was a liability on the ice, he was a better player last year. Palmer was lost and lacked confidence with the puck, not the player with the great hands I seen in previous games.On the positive , Macaulay is a good stay at home defenseman who sees the ice well, in the 3 games he had 2 assists and no goals against, but limited ice time in the third game. McGregor had a great tourney... A solid kid with great hands, he had some great chances around the net and had 3 points in the 3 games I watched. if he moved the puck more he would be a threat to any team. I could talk on other players, but was only there to follow up on flagged players. This team is the worst coached team ,by far, in the Maritimes . The undiscipline, long shifts and lack of coordinated play had onlookers scratching their heads. The +/- of the first line D is that of a bad pee wee team. My advice to the parents of the above mentioned players is to get released from this coaching staff as soon as possible. I wish the Islanders good luck in rest of the season, and please pass this on to the parents of the above
