Vanek

With the way our season is going, it might be better for the Isles to trade Vanek and let Strome take his spot.

What would your team give up to get him? Would prefer a 1 for 1 flip instead of a collection of pieces. Defence needed.

Perfect fit in Montreal. Would have to be a pick and a prospect though.

You're really not going to get a trade like that with Vanek being a UFA ... no team outside of the playoffs is going to trade for him and the contenders will want to move futures for him.

Islanders are in a pickle if they think they're going to get immediate help.

Maybe not immediate help, but someone like Duncan Siemens would be great.

Chris Tanev + 1st + Gaunce/Jensen/maybe Lack

Provided we can be fairly certain to re-sugn him.

If I were the Islanders I would be trying to recoup the 2015 1st that will eventually be deferred to Sabres. 2015 1st and either a D-man or Goalie that is close to NHL ready.

Isles will have four or five blueline prospects ,with legitimate chances at a limited number of nhl spots in next yrs camp: Reinhart , De Haan, Pulock, Donovan and maybe Ness.

Not looking for picks or orospects.

Then you better hope you re-sign him.

Probably not going to get that, though. Look through past deadline deals - I honestly can't think of any "1-for-1 UFA for young roster player" off the top of my head. These "Player + Prospect + Pick" trades have simply become the norm, and if Vanek gets traded, I sincerely doubt it'll be a 1-on-1 swap.

I have said several times that I want Vanek to get a huge offer from Wang and re-sign.

Isles already have a bunch of quality prospects, so no interesting in kids who's upside is lower then Strome/Reinhart/Pulock/Nelson.

A first that is 3-4 yrs from contributing? Nah. I would rather have Vanek.

Starting to sound like Garth here:

- Too much confidence in our picks and prospects
- Would rather keep Vanek and let him walk then recoup our assets

As much as I like our organizational depth, if the kiddies were really that good, they'd be contributing on the main team and we wouldn't be looking at another bottom 5 finish.

Whether or not we sign or resign Vanek is another issue entirely, but the "we don't need your picks or prospects so don't even bother" attitude is a very, very, very bad one to take when you're trying to move an upcoming UFA. I'll happily take a prospect whose upside is slightly lower than Strome/Reinhart/Pulock/Nelson.

No interesting in seeing the key return for Vanek blocked by better orosoects from the nhl, but thriving in juniors or the ahl.

A trade is a two way street. Teams trying to acquire Vanek want an elite scorer. In this case, I agree with Snow. Offer up something that will actually improve the nyi, while Vanek improves the other team.

It's just not realistic to expect that though. Look at last year's trade deadline:

Pominville, Gaborik, Jagr, JayBo, all traded for packages of players. Erat traded for Forsberg.

As much as I'd want a young top-4 defenseman coming back, history proves that we really shouldn't be expecting that. If Vanek does get traded from the Islanders sometime this season, I'd bet anything it would look like a Tanev & Gaunce & 1st deal as opposed to what you're looking for.

Out of curiosity, what roster-ready defenseman would you be looking for that you'd view as fair exchange for UFA Vanek? I'm curious if you can think up a "1-for-1" deal that both sides would agree to.

I had been hoping Nashville and the Isles would end up trade partners, that youngsters Jones/Josi have made Klein available. But, Nashville has pretty much fallen out if the race.

So now I find myself cheering on Columbus, 4-5 pts behind the 2nd and 3rd teams in their division. I have always liked Tytutin from his NYR days.

Considering Snow said last summer that the isles fan should expect internal upgrades, I would consider Klein or Tytutin to be terrific vet pickup, while kids like Reinhart/Pulock/De Haan make their way onto the roster.

I think we could very likely see two out of those three playing on LI nextseason.

Klein is the new Khudobin to me. Every Isles fan seems to want him and I have no idea why.
