No interest, not even tempted, in taking such Milburylike short term moves.

Like the Leafs, the isles are building with homegrown talent.
Unlike the leafs, the isles won't be spending anywhere close to the cap ceiling.
A succesful team fills the arena ($), playoff home games bring in tons of revenue ($), and the Isles need to give the fans a reason to come to the rink.

This "rebuilding w/ homegrown talent" plan has been dragging for years, you have Tavares, it's time to add some real talent.
