Also, the 1st round pick the Isles give up is likely to be a lottery pick, in a deep draft. Would you rather have Sharp until he hits UFA, or one of Mackinnon/Jones/Barkov/Lindholm/Monahan/Drouin/Shinkaruk/Lazar/Pulock for 7+ years?
bailey has ben converted to left wing which the isles have an abundance of, nielsen is going to be moved eventually along with either one of bailey or grabner, I'm not expecting there to be a season and the isles will only have 2 balls in the lottery, we have a handful of legit big d men prospects, and i expect sharp to resign when he hits ufa and carcillo is a 2 year stop gap

so the isles top 2 lines could be either
moulson - tavares - strome
grabner - sharp - okposo
moulson - tavares - sharp
grabner - nelson - okposo

the isles would actually have a ton of options for what to do if they got rid of bailey and nielsen and got a legit right handed forward in return
