Just keep Kesler in the minors, play Allen and spend the $4.25m from Peca on a UFAs, or use the assets/salary space on a scoring winger like O'Neil in a trade.

Aah. But, you are thinking of it from the VCR perspective. I could understand why you might not want to part with youth or tie up salary.

I was looking at it from an Islander perspective. After all we gave up to get Peca, it would not make sense to trade him for unproven youngsters.

Trottier's trade proposal was more than fair. I just don't want to see Peca go for players who are not established and may or may not work out.
