At this juncture, and in light of not only all the Dmen in the club, but also the way Hickey and Strait have played, I'd have absolutely no problem with a move like Okposo and de Haan to Chicago for Hjalmarsson and Shaw.

In the short run, it makes us better now while still holding potential for the future. Should de Haan overcome injuries and Okposo finally wakes up, it could end up being a great move for Chicago in the long run. Chicago would be saving roughly a million on the deal. Hjalmarsson has two years left on his.

This move would then open the door to perhaps a bigger deal involving Streit, who I'm somehow not viewing as a career Islander.
