On the topic of the trade at hand I'd say no.

Not because there isn't enough coming back. I think there is.

A package of Reinhart, Grabner and Martin would be a good haul.

But...Reinhart is a year or two off yet....Subban has arrived and then some. He's not a finished product by any means but he's our best defenseman for better or for worse.

I could see Grabner slotting in nicely on the second line wing with Plekanec and Gionta. That would probably be the one of the fastest lines of all time! Think of the wheels!!

Matt Martin would be a nice fit on the third line.

It just doesn't quite work for me. I'd be heartbroken if we gave Subban up and watched him light it up for the NYI for the next 15 years.

I can see the Islanders being reluctant to give up that much also.

I'm kind of a closet fan of the Islanders and want them to succeed except against the Habs.

I think both teams are probably better off with what they have FWIW.
It's refreshing that this thread has actually started a legit discussion rather than the AINEC bull$(%^.
