I guess in my proposal Boston wins slightly talent on the ice and Islanders probably win for leadership and locker room improvement.

the deal is...
Nathan Horton
Andrew Ference

Lubomir Vishnovsky
Josh Bailey

I would suggest that all 4 guys would be resigned by the new teams. Horton would probably be a first line winger for the Islanders for his next contract. Ference is a good 4/5 vet dman and great locker room guy.

Vishnovsky would factor in as Boston's new PP QB and partner with one of Seidenberg or Chara while the other one becomes Hamilton's partner for what is a versitile top 4. Bailey hopefully would fit in with Seguin and Lucic to be one of Boston's top 2 lines in the days to come {imagine Krecji gets moved maybe later on when cap savings are needed} and then Bergeron/Marchand make up the other top line with maybe Caron?
Horton's a ufa in July 2013. He has zero ties or loyalty to the NYI. There is no reason, he would pass up a chance at testing the ufa market.

and what do Wang/Snow offer Horton, with his concussion issues?
