Petersen- drafted in 2013.

McAdam- drafted in 2013.

I am going to disagree that Snow would trade Lee for a goalie prospect. He just drafted two in June 2013 and expects Nilson to fully recover.
Surprises Islanders fan would preach against goalie options after what happened to DiPi... yes you have (some) depth today... but as you show the picture is like this...

NHL 1- Nabokov
NHL 2- Poulin

AHL 1- Nilson (hopefully)
AHL 2- ?

ECHL 1-?
ECHL 2-?

Euro 1- Koskinen
Euro 2- ?

Junior 1- Petersen
Junior 2- McAdam

NCAA 1- Williams
NCAA 2- Rosen

That really is not much 'depth' at all... especially when the juniors are so young and 3-4 years out at least

The Oilers can offer prospects that way... worldbeaters no but they are options for the future and will plug into the pro game right now where the biggest gap is

Olivier Roy- AHL starter now maybe NHL backup
Tyler Bunz- ECHL starter now maybe NHL backup
Frans Tuohimaa- FEL starter now AHL starter next year
Niko Hovinen- KHL starter now maybe NHL backup
Ty Rimmer- (FA signing) AHL backup

I would offer any two of them + Tyler Pitlick + 2015 2nd for Lee
