Can't see the Isles bringing in a goalie at all.

I imagine at MacDonald's cap hit and his production, he isn't available. Although what about something around Okposo + MacDonald for Johnson?

JJ is signed to a sweetheart deal for 6 more years after this season... I don't see why you would dump him?

A-Mart plus or Slava is my bet.

If Dean trades Jack for Okposo (play when I want too). AEG should fire him on the spot.

I'm doubting the legitimacy of this rumor. Seems like an odd moment for the Isles to trade off one of their supposed 'core' forwards.

True, but it's hard to define "odd" when dealing with the Isles.

I don't see Okposo helping the Kings much. They need an offensively gifted winger who can score 30+ goals. Okposo is in the same mold as Brown/Penner but knowing Lombardi he is probably in love with Okposo's "grit", which isn't much to be honest.

I agree. I didn't see this one coming, Okposo has never been rumored to be available. If it was Parenteau, then very believable.

Weird...Dregs usually posts this sort of stuff on Twitter. Just checked his profile and didn't see any updates.

Kinda surprised it's KO rumoured to go. I would have thought PAP would have been the guy on his way out.

Either way I hope its true. Isles could use all the help they can get on the blueline.

Even more than that though, there are still important games to be played before the deadline. I don't think Snow has decided yet if he's a buyer or seller.

JJ for Okposo+ isnt the right deal for them IMO. LA is trying to win soon so they need JJ. Considering NYI isn't in a hurry to be competing for the cup, I'm sure they'd be fine taking in defensive prospects and/or picks in return to help the rebuild. LA keeps their roster and upgrades their current chances while NYI stock up for the future. No way JJ is a part of the Okposo deal.
