No disrespect at the OP, but for the Islanders to trade Niederreiter within the division, it will take something that the other teams would not give up - think along the lines of one of Coburn, Couturier, Hartnell, etc.

The Islanders don't make trades for anything but short-term stopgaps of players they have contractual control over for more than 2 seasons. They also don't seem to be keen to give up young players, as history has burnt them for this before in Spezza, Chara, Luongo, etc. The only players that fit both bills on Philly's roster are players they wouldn't trade - the Schenn brothers were re-united for a reason, Hartnell's a leader for the Flyers, and they're not trading Coburn after missing out on Shea Weber.
