FEARLESS PREDICTION: If #isles make a trade up front @ forward, won't be Okposo, Bailey. Will be Michael Grabner. don't say i didn't warn u

The Fourth Period links the NYI to ROR, it would make sense, Garth and Cappy both view Nielson as a true 3C.

these are pointless rumours and speculation by wanna-be reporters not more informed than the generic HF poster - BUT, with that said, I'd deal Grabs for ROR in a heartbeat. O'Reilly is a MUCH better player, both offensively and far better defensively. Grabner's got explosive speed and has played better this year (except maybe the last 2-3 games) but that's an easy deal to make if I'm Snow.

Of course I'm sure they'd want Streit or Vis....
I've heard that mentioned a few times. I haven't seen much of Bishop but is certainly well thought of, gigantic, I'd probably take a shot if the price is right. I imagine both Poulin and Nilsson (and Mikko) need more seasoning and it's not like DiPietro's knocking on the door for a starting job based on his play.
