I can see them picking a defenseman too though.

IMO they should just wait until Strome, Nino, and Kabonov fill the ranks, or draft another one. They definitely don't want to be trading any key pieces away.

Bozak >> Martin

Kessel for a top 6 player (Okposo is boarderline, I'd say he's better suited for top 9) + 1st/Strome (I chose Strome as I'm not all that impressed with Okposo)

Kessel = Okposo + Strome

Overal I think the deal is more than fair for both sides. Sorry you feel otherwise.

If you would prefer, you could sub in Grabner + 3rd instead of Okposo.

Kessel + Bozak for Grabner + Martin + Strome + 3rd

Bozak is a ufa this summer. He holds little value to the NYI. Imo the isles would rather keep Martin, who's not a ufa until July 2016.

Kessel is a ufa in July 2014. Isles would rather keep Okposo + Strome.

With the way he's (Bozak) currently playing he could probably garner a 1st at the trade deadline. I'd prefer us to re-sign him and Kessel, but if the writing was on the wall for Kessel, we might as well deal them both as they play well together and that might be more enticing for a team acquiring them.

The Isles really have no interest in Bozak and I doubt they're willing to give up assets for Kessel with some strong forward prospects already in the system.

I'm sure there's a few players out there who wouldn't mind going to play on John Tavares' line and seeing their numbers inflate like Moulson, Parenteau and now Brad Boyes. Parenteau was a career minor leaguer who cashed in this summer because he played two full seasons with JT

I've always thought of Cole as a good comparison for Nino. The Isles are grooming him for top-6 duty in the AHL. It's not a stretch to think that he could be JT's winger next season.

Cole would be a good fit in New York plus Okposo is not a 1st line option, Cole could be. He has been playing bad this year but let's say Desharnais and the injured paciorretty doesn't help him much.

Problem i think Cole as a NTC in his contract i'm not sure he would waive it for the islanders no offense. With the team moving to brooklyn let's say it's kind of unstable.

If you took out Martin for Bozak thats a very good proposal. Bozak is of no interest to the Isles who have Nielsen, Tavares and center prospects like Nelson and Cizikas. Martin is signed to a 4 year deal and is a fan favorite.

Yeah I'd strongly consider that Kessel deal. Would probably do it if I was confident that an extension would be reached. Having both Strome and Nelson helps make one of them expendable(I'd rather deal Nelson, but what are you gonna do?). Not to mention Sundstrom as a dark horse.

I'd be ok with that...

To NYI:
Phil Kessel

To Tor:
Kyle Okposo
Ryan Strome

Do you think if you keep posting Kessel to LI, that it will somehow change the Isles budget restrictions or Kessel closing in on unrestricted free agency?

We're not NHL GMs here. It's not like anything said on this forum will actually come to fruition. Value wise, that proposal is a pretty good deal. Something rarely accomplished here.

If the leafs want some combo of cheap top prospects Strome/Nino/Reinhart + cheap young nhlers Grabner+Okposo, then how hard is it to say ok, Snow is working with a restricted budget and will want players, who'll fit into his budget for several yrs....
which affordable Leaf players, would Snow want for his top prospects+ young nhlers?

I call that a realistic look at Kessel's trade value. Feel free to bump this thread, when Toronto gets 2 recent, high lottery picks+ a 1st for him.

Because every Leafs fan cries themself to sleep at night over the Kessel trade. Please. We don't need your pity or your help, thanks. Get over yourself.

You don't have my pity, I doubt the Leafs will have Snow's help and I don't care about whether Kessel gets traded because I realize Snow's budget restrictions. So, take your own advice and get over yourself.

Rehinhart + Nino + Strome to even think about it giving up our best player. I would never expect NYI to give up that type of haul though.

Why don't we just throw in our 1st rounder to your package so you'll really think about it.

Seriously doubt Snow trading away his last 3 top-5 picks for someone who is not guaranteed to play for the Isles past next season. Plus, Wang clearly doesn't want to spend money until the move to Brooklyn gets closer.

Not sure if you're being serious, but where the hell do I sign?
