AO to the Brooklyn Islanders

Would love to hear some potential scenarios that move Alex Ovechkin to the Brooklyn Islanders in time for the new era of Islanders Hockey.

Only untouchable is Tavares

Cute, but it makes no sense to trade JT for AO.

THE WHOLE IDEA IS GETTING THE TWO TOGETHER

There was a big Ovie to the Isles thread not too long ago. Doubtful scenario.

It's an enormous package if Tavares isn't included...

Hamonic/MacDonald

Isn't there a Ovie to NYI thread from just 3 days ago?

1. Isles passed on Jeff Carter because they were turned off from long term deals, after the disasterous Yashin and Dipietro deals.

2.The NY Times says the isles will not look, to make their big money from the 15,000-15,500 cheap seats, but from the 100 luxury suites that corporations buy. The luxury and premium seats, are projected to bring in an extra $35m a season. The isles will not get a boost from the Brooklyn Russian fans, who ignored Yashin, coming off a career high 96 pts.

3.Ovie's stats have gone from 109 pts to 85pts, down to 65 pts.
I'm sure Wang recalls the days, of paying Yashin $10m for his 70 pt season. Isles are still paying Yashin $2.2m per and will until July 2015.

Milbury hasn't worked for the NYI, for 6-7 yrs now.

Ovie is the new Yashin? Amazing if true

No, what's amazing is ignoring that the isles have been burned on extremely long deals not once, but twice under the same ownership and expecting that same owner, to take on another player with declining stats + a longterm, huge contract.

A few credible sources (Botta+ Staples), have discussed the Isles move to Brooklyn and payroll. They don't think even with the move to Brooklyn, that the NYI will be a cap ceiling team.
