    I've always had a soft spot for the Isles being friends with Mick Vukota and I'd have to say that Snow is doing this team no good. Nino at minimum should have gotten a camp invite and IMO should be up with the Isles right now. I don't see the Isles making the playoff so why not have the kid learn on the job and get experience under his belt?

    This team has some decent piece to build around but it seems like the only way Snow wants to build is via draft and that simply wont do it. As a hockey fan I'd rather see this forward combo's this season then what Snow has rolled out

    Moulson - JT - Okposo
    Grabner - Strome - Boyes
    Ullstrom - Nielsen - Nino
    Martin - Reasoner - Cizikas

    I proposed this deal in the B's thread cause I'm a huge Nino fan and thought I'd see what you guys though. IF Snow gave in and said he'd move Nino would you guys do Malcolm Subban for Nino Niederreiter straight up? This would give you guys one of the best goalie prospect in the game AND if Snow grew a set he could try and pry PK away from MTL (via trade or offer sheet).

    That's a tough one but I don't think I would.

    I like Subban a lot, I want PK a **** load right now lol, and Malcolm is gonna be awesome, but I just don't think havign a top 5 or 3 franchise goalie means that much in winning a cup. IMO, all you need is a very good, top 15 goalie, who can get ****ing hot. I think the Isles can get that in either Poulin or Nilsson, both just 22 though so well see.

    Niemi, Fleury, Giguere, Ward, Osgood, Tim Thomas, Jonathan Quick.

    Niemi and Fluery are in the 10-15 range, Osgood was probably in the bottom 10, Thomas and Quick were the only top 5's, Ward probably top 10, Giguere was good at the time but not perenially great. ETC.

    Its something Id consider but probably not accept.

    That would be a horrendous deal for the Isles, imo. Nino is an elite prospect, we're getting a top 10-15 goalie but he's only 2-3 years younger than Nabokov and not much better, if even. Falk is a bottom pairing defenseman... Rau is a meh prospect.

    That would be such a bad deal for the Islanders. Once again, barely upgrade in goal and we trade 2 top 6 wingers for a 3rd lien C, skilled W who's done nothign the last 3 uyears, and a couple meh prospects? Ill pass
