Obtaining Bonk and losing Peca would (still) give the Islanders a very good set of centers:
Yashin
Bonk
Scatchard

Yashin & Bonk are not so hot on faceoffs so Scatchy would be needed for that role. All three have good size. Islanders get better offensive production from Bonk than Peca, and still get good D play. One plays wingers that need to get the puck with Bonk, while playing wingers that like to pass with Yashin.

Iím a Sens fan, and I have both doubts and hopes about a Peca deal (can Peca return to previous levels, or will he fade like Zamuner), but if I was an Islanders fan I would make this deal as Bonk is a known quantity at this time.

And for the game tonight, expected attendance:
9,000 fans
7,000 scouts
