I'd love to get Nielson out of the NYI... but he's on an affordable contract and the guy is a great 2-way C.. I highly doubt the Isles would be looking to move him. I think he's actually one of their most important key players after the obvious ones like Tavares, Moulson etc.

Hickey actually looked solid for them last season and he could end up being a bit of a steal for them. They've had solid luck with the waiver wire with guys like Grabner, Nabokov, Hickey... even Colin McDonald looks likes he's turning out well for them. They seem to be doing well working with projects and getting the most out of them.
