In all honesty, I do think this deal is linked to the most recent trade.

Mind you, the Isles have never seen anything from Chicago for Toews or from Tampa for Gervais.

I hope this has to do with neither of the ECHLers being good enough for the AHL so that there never really are any 'future considerations'.

Still, doesn't Alexandrov actually still have a valid contract with Boston???

I thought he had signed a normal ELC and then only spent one year in North America?

He looked pretty good in the scrimmages against the Isles' prospects back in 2010.

I agree with that last line, I was impressed with him the couple times I watched him. According to Bruins fans he lacks commitment to conditioning and trying to really improve his game.

In addition, I can tell you right now that he already has the size, speed, agility, strength and wherewithall to be in the NHL now.

Whether he'd have a season much like Niederreiter's or not, I cannot answer, but he is much more NHL-ready than him.

I would not worry about Petrov's ability to come in and immediately have an NHL job.

If Snow signs him, it's pretty much his to lose. The kid is much more ready for NHL play than many here think.

Now, is he ready to come in and make an offensive impact? Very likely not...

As for Alexandrov, the kid is solid, but unspectacular. He's no Klementyev. I gotta wonder what the team has up their sleeve with respect to getting him back over here.

Surely we can offer him ice time that Boston could not. Can he even be added to BPort this season???

I think not. But would he have to go through waivers to arrive at the Island? Not if his contract situation is more or less the same as Radulov's, which I believe it is.

The trade deadline only restricts players from playing in the playoffs should they be traded after the 'deadline.' Teams can still make all the deals they want right now, however, none of the players involved in said hypothetical deals will have playoff eligibility.

Essentially, the trade deadline is more of a trade deadline for the playoffs.

That's not it at all. The issue is what this may herald. Signing him like HyeDrey states likely means they need defensemen for the Bridge next year when we call up multiple defensive projects. Now you may ask what the big deal is with that. Here's the big deal:

None of the defensemen at the Bridge should be playing on anything but limited duration emergency call ups. By proxy, it suggests that we won't be adding anyone to our defense in the summer.

That means hello top 5 pick next season. See the concern.

I was talking about myself but it's embarrassing for him too; looks like he has no NHL future?

Myth.

Not all KHL rinks are olympic sized...

Obviously the Isles have NOTHING to worry about when it comes to setting the playoff roster....they could be trading like a wall street junkie....lol

Alexandrov has stick skills that are really impressive for a defenseman and he has an okay shot. After that I guess there isn't too much to be excited about. He tried to play defense too much with the stick and didn't use his body at all.

I liked him last year for Providence because he played differently than the North American defensemen...He seems to like skating with the puck and he is patient...willing to skate backwards sort of like Kaberle does/did to wait for the play to progress like if the forwards are making a line change. He's not a "bang it off the glass and out" type which is something I like but I guess his drawbacks outweigh the good things he can bring which is something I did not want to admit but is probably true.

I disagree, I think this was a guy that someone in the Islanders system thought had potential and when he became available for nothing the Isles took a chance. He is only a short time removed from being a 2nd round pick. The same 2nd round picks that everyone on these boards gets a hard on over.

The Islanders will have Streit, MacDonald and Hamonic in the NHL next year baring some unexpected trade. That leaves three open spots. I do believe that they will give one of Donovan, deHaan or Ness a shot on the Islanders.

Donovan will be close to 23 years old when the season starts next year and is coming off a hell of a rookie season in the AHL, a solid college career and a solid WJC history. Im not so convinced it is far fetched for him to play in the NHL as a bottom pairing guy. I still don't buy into Ness and deHaan hasnt done anything to date to earn a sport but camp is there for a reason.

That leaves 2 open slots in the NHL.

Now lets cut back to the AHL. Figure that the top two or three spots are filled with deHaan/Ness/Donovan. Wishart is a free agent and most likely wont be signed, Katic is a free agent and could possibly be signed. That leaves 3-4 spots to fill in the AHL.

I really dont believe this move plays any roll in players being signed in the offseason.

Now dont confuse me as saying that I believe they will do the right thing and fill out our blue line but I dont think this move plays any roll in that decision.
