Niederreiter is a great prospect and helps make up for the years lost in swapping Yandle for Nielsen. Plus, Klesla is due back, OEL is showing no signs of slowed progression, and both Morris and Schlemko picked back up right where they left off as highly effective NHL D. Not to mention Stone and Rundblad looking good and Michalek not having quite settled back in (but I'm sure he will). No idea, at all, if the Isles will go for it. If you want grit ok the wings NOW and help on the blueline NOW, I guess Yandle and Torres will help. Nelson doesn't really fill in for Nielsen right now, but he can at least contribute in some way, I'm sure. Maybe Strome? I don't know much about the Islanders. I only watched them twice last season. Once live and once on television. I think I was drunk both times. Haha.

I'd hope the isles would be in the mix if Yandle is shopped.

edited: I recalled Streit($4.1m) is a ufa this summer. Isles could pay Yandle with Streit salary.

Nice proposal. Both sides give up value.
