So, the Isles need at least one more center for next year. I highly, highly doubt that the Isles want to just hand both Strome and Nelson top-9 center spots. In fact, even as an Isles fan I will say that it is doubtful that they both end up better than Nielsen. Law of averages on prospect development.
And, there is no way the Isles are going to trade a center now, in the middle of a playoff race, because they might have too many centers down the road.
The quote said that the Hawks were looking at Nielsen, not that the Isles have any interest in trading him. Unless you want to dramatically overpay, there is no way you will get him from the Isles.
This is a great post.
