Yeah, Pavelski is, by far, the best player in the deal. Both Grabner and Nielsen are replaceable players, which is what makes it easy for the Isles to afford them.

But the idea for this deal shows the kind of leverage the Islanders might have as time moves on. We have cap space, and we have depth. Honestly, though, I'd rather spend the assets on a D-man.

I think San Jose would counter, and ask for Nielsen and Nelson. Size is important and that would give San Jose a reason to make a deal. As a NYI fan, I would not want to do that.

Cheers,
