Capitals receive
Kyle Okposo
Mark Streit
Johan Sundstrom
Scott Mayfield
2013 1st Round Pick
2014 3rd Round Pick

Islanders receive
Alex Ovechkin
Jack Hillen
2013 3rd Round Pick

An outrageous idea, but Brooklyn has the largest Russian community probably across the nation, Hillen was good for the Islanders and liked playing for the Islanders and would love to have another stint with them, Streit is at the end of his 5 year deal and to get a guy like Ovechkin he'd sign back. Yeah the Islanders are giving up Okposo, who would do way better if he had better linemates than the ones the Islanders have him playing with. Ovechkin would love to play on the Tavares-Moulson line, and they'd easily be one of the best, if not the best line in the league. Streit is a good #2-#3 defense man on any team, he's the Islanders #1, and Johan Sundstrom, Scott Mayfield, and 2 high draft picks could also help out the Capitals...

Wow. Just wow.

Someone should explain to the writer that the NYI isles haven't gone thru yrs of rebuilding, only to act asthe Caps farm team. No interest in Yashin part 2.

Charles Wang is exploring selling the team. The NY press says he has a big $75m loan due in 2014. The isles continue to use cap floor tricks like the phantom Thomas cap hit and players having cap hits higher then their actual salary.
Wang wouldn't touch Ovie's huge longterm contract, after being burned on Yashin+ DiPietro's longterm contracts.

and as for Brooklyn's a big Russian population....the NY Times reports that Wang's looking to make his big money in Barclay, off the 101 luxury and premium seats, off corporations. Not off the cheaper , regular seats. If the isles want to appeal to fans in the cheaper seats to cover all bases, then ice a playoff team and add youngsters like Valeri Nichushkin and Kabanov to the roster.
