Malec is a highly regarded defense prospect who could eventually be a very nice defenseman for the Islanders. He handles the puck well, has good size and can play physical hockey.

Of course, something probably has to be added, but what is your thoughts on the framework?
I give you credit for a careful and thoughtful post.

If the Isles do look to move more salary, I think something of this nature could certainly fly. It seems like a reasonable deal to me.

I have to say that, as an Islander fan, I'd rather keep Hamrlik. I'm just not 100% sure that is an option.

Man, do I ever miss Oleg Kvasha. If Oleg was here, everything would be OK.
