Tor - Nyi

If NYI continues to flounder, and is looking at moving Okposo, or perhaps at the deadline if they are not in the race.

To TOR:

Kyle Okposo

To NYI:

Matthew Lombardi
Keith Aulie
2nd 2012

Work for anyone? Better suggestions to get Okposo in blue and white?

No thanks, KO has struggled this year but he just signed a very cap friendly 5 year deal

Isles won't do it. Okposo is a big player for them, won't be leaving for Aulie who's finding his way in the AHL right now and Lombardi who's been quiet offensively

Yeah KO has struggled, but I'm not giving up on him like some other Islander fans. He can be a really special player.

If you want Okposo we would want Schenn, not spear parts.

Even if some Isles fans have given up on him (prematurely, IMO,) the Isles aren't moving Okposo. He's cost controlled for 5 years, and they're cheap.

I know two others have already done something like this but let's make it be 3rd times the charm

Yeah Aulie is definitly not a spare part.

Is this serious? Okposo for Schenn?

Grabner for Schenn? Yes

Tavares for Schenn + a 1st? Yes

Okposo for Schenn? Burke hangs up before it rings.

Too bad NYI laughs and then pukes and then laughs again.


But yeah, I'd keep KO if i was the Islanders.

Well if you would want Schenn were pretty much only interested in Tavares and givin the fact that NYI could use a good franchise D men and a first wouldnt be too bad I dont think its terrible..but I dont think they would agree to it anyway. But Okposo for Schenn? that is laughable.

I'd agree with you.

And I don't think Burke would go for it.

And I wouldn't trade Okposo for Lombardi & Aulie either. Okposo's the best player in that deal, even though he isn't scoring right now.

I wouldn't do that one either, and I doubt the Islanders trade there franchise player.

There's no way I'd do it from the Leafs standpoint.

It doesn't come close to working for me.Is 23 yr old KO too old for Snow's youth movement?

Is KO's $1m salary breaking the bank for Wang?

Isles have a log jam at forward with Nino coming back in a few days.No interest in Lombardi.They also have Ciskas/Ullstrom knocking on the door at Bridgeport.

I think Snow would prefer to let De Haan,Donovan,Ness and Katic keep developing and fight it out in training camp,for any open roster spots instead of moving KO and having Aulie as the key return.De Hann and Donovan have top 4 potential.

That 2nd?Meh.The isles have TON of unproven prospects.Zero interest in a 2nd, that will likely not contribute for 3-5 yrs.

Don't know about the deal in the OP, but I do know that each of Burke, Wilson and especially Gordon have worked with Okposo before.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Leafs would like to target him for the right price.

Considering the Isles are having woes on the blueline, there's fair reason to believe that TOR and NYI could be logical trade partners, despite being in the same conference.

Throw in some transferring of contracts to make things bigger and it could get interesting.

Okposo for Schenn was just as bad.

I figured it made sense too, which is exactly why I said there could be better deals to get him in blue and white.

I really like Lombardi as a player and Aulie has shown promise. Tough deal to make even with Okposo struggling.
