If that happens...

To NYI- Alex Edler
To VAN- Brock Nelson, Frans Nielsen

The Canucks would be pushing for Strome or Okposo but Snow would likely balk at that asking price. Gillis has been looking for a 3C for awhile and Nielsen more than fills that hole. Vancouver is also seriously lacking in young roster forwards.

Snow is apparently looking for a top pairing dman and there probably won't be a better defenseman than Alex Edler moved by any team. Those players just never become available, especially not ones young enough to grow with the Islanders young core. Edler is in his prime but signed to a cap friendly contract for 6 years.

Thoughts from Islander fans?
