What about this trade if the Isles do get the #1 pick:

Tampa: 1st overall pick (Tavares) + ?

Isles get a great offensive guy already under contract for 10+ years and have plenty of cap space for him.

Tampa gets a great young, cheap, very talented forward to built around with Stamkos and get rid of salary (for now!)

Should something be added to one side or the other, perhaps Tampa gets another draft pick or a young, cheap F or D who is NHL proven (Bergenheim, Nielsen, Gervais...)

mods: If this was already proposed in recent weeks plz delete!

I'd love to have VL playing for the isles,but that $10m a yr contract would make me very leery.

The Isles are still paying Yashin his buyout money.DiPi's got a longterm deal and battling knee/hip inuries.
