In this case, he has come out with a dumb speculative statement, gotten everybody to pay attention to him, and talk about him. I'll bet anything that his suggestion that the Isles might want Liles will drive half the Leaf fans on this board wild with hope.

Seems like he is just good at his job.
Agreed, just like the offseason, the Islanders don't need a defenseman. However, there are injuries on defense right now, but that doesn't change the fact that they don't need another Offensive Defenseman long term. They can easily find another defenseman who is better defensively. Perhaps they'll go after Mark Fraser for a decent pick or something, but even that's unlikely.

I think the Isles need ANY kind of defensemen - offensive or otherwise. Even before the injury, the essentially only had three top four guys (Vish, MacDonald, and Hamonic). The other guys, like Strait, and Hickey are essentially bottom pairing dmen.

IMO, a competent top four guy with a bit of size would be great - whether he is defensively oriented or not.

The Leafs have nothing to offer in that regard though and the Isles and Leafs generally don't trade with each other anyway.

Liles and a pick for De Haan? Or Liles for another bad contract?

The Isles have the smallest, softest defense that I can remember.
Habs have something to say about that.

Somewhat OT: Now that the Thrashers have moved, who are you pulling for? The Thrashers had this strong group of followers on this board (really sharp informed bunch of guys). Wondered what ever became of them.

If Liles was even adequate defensively, he'd be on the 2nd pairing in Toronto. Despite what you read on here, Leafs defense is atrocious. Fraser, Franson, Gardiner, et all are borderline NHL players.

I thought originally the Islanders had too many offensive defensemen. Ness, De Haan, etc? However, Liles is not a top 4 defenseman, so Dreger is wrong again.

Liles is small in stature but definitely not soft or weak. He is not worth his salary but he is still a good NHL defenseman and a great PP QB.

Seems like Dreger is the only reporter keeping Liles rumors alive. It's rather comical.

No matter the way I look at it, I don't think there can be a trade done, even if the rumours are true. I would rather just add Ashton to get Gleason. It would most likely help us more than getting a 7th or 6th or a even a 5th (which would really be pushing it) and/or some prospect ever will.
