Raymond/Schroeder depending on what NYI needs are. Raymond played on the same line as Grabner for a while and had his 25 goal season then. If this deal is done at the trade deadline, Schroeder becomes slightly more expendable if Kesler is back.

Deal is based on Visnovsky wanting out of NYI (plenty of signs so far) and Niederreiter (if the recent rumours are true, like what happened with Turris). Ballard is getting more ice time this season, he's looked pretty solid so far, and maybe he has a great season and this trade goes down at the deadline. Visnovsky really makes sense, Vancouver misses the extra offense Ehrhoff brought, especially on the PP. Not totally sure the consensus on how valuable Niederreiter is, but Luongo would have a bigger impact on the team's success for the next few seasons and is the proven asset.
Fair deal but will Luongo ok trade to the Islanders.
