Via Staple - Strome called up

Strome called up, and Nelson playing too well to sit. So, the Isles are going to have to move two forwards off the roster (I would think).

PMB will clear waivers and get sent down, IMO. Maybe the Isles move Regin next, maybe they take the opportunity to move a forward for defense (as I had hoped since the summer).

But, moves are definitely on the horizon now.

Staple predicted a week ago that a move in goal was coming shortly, so these seemingly minor transactions could be the prelude.

Is Strome gonna play top six? Something like this?

Vanek - Tavares - Okposo
Bailey - Nielsen - Strome
Grabner - Nelson - Clutterbuck
Martin - Cizikas - McDonald

Looks right to me.

Personally, I'm hoping this means that Nielsen is going to get moved for a goaltender/defensemen. The Isles still need to work in Anders Lee (who is PPG in the AHL).

As always, you input is very valuable.

Just to be clear, the main point is that I think somebody is probably about to happen. I believe they are calling up Strome and giving Nelson a more prominent role as a prelude to moving forwards, either in straight out dumps, or trades.

Really solid up and coming team who will be a true contender in a few years that could still squeak in to the playoffs. I like what Snow and Wang have done with it. Really nice organization now.

Can't wait to see Strome finally play. Been waiting since he was drafted and saw some of his highlights. Personally I thought he would make the team from the beginning of the season though

Totally agree.

I still think this is the prelude to further deals though.

How about Kyle Okposo for Roman Josi.

Josi would look good in the top pairing with Hamonic.

Well, that depends on which forward you mean. You are not getting Strome, Nelson, Tavares, Okposo, Vanek, Martin, Czikas, or Nielsen.

The "extras" we have are guys like Bailey, Grabner, and Regin (who I think may get waived).

The problem is that none of those guys are good enough to be the basis for a deal built around Anderson, even though he is not having a great season.

Would you be happy with taking Grabner + 3rd ?

Spezza might be able to revive Grabner to his old self.

And you guys can bring MacArthur back to the Turris-Ryan line.

Isles need a goalie for this season and the next. They already have a bunch of defense prospects in the system so trading for one would only be detrimental.

Trading for a defense PROSPECT would not be sensible, true. Trading for an experienced defender is an entirely different issue.

I was implying Grabner or Bailey.

I think Bailey or Grabner+ for Anderson could work.

I think that favors the Isles, but yeah, I would do that.

But are the goalie prospects looking like potential starters?

I don't think the Isles have any goalie prospects who looked like NHL players at this point, to be frank. They're all projects.

Isles have needs in both goal and defense.

I would say the need is exponentially more dire in net. Maybe Nielsen can go for Gibson, Campbell, or Lack.

@PeterBotte 1 thing Isles have mastered over years, calling up prospects to buy time with the disgruntled fan base.

Very exciting times for Isles fans, good luck with him.

Did Grabner get demoted to the 3rd line? If so too bad, can't remember seeing a more exciting player than him during his rookie season.

Huh? You like trading a bunch of draft picks for a pending FA who probably won't come back?

Snow is not a good GM and Wang is a clueless owner. I think there is a better chance things get so bad Tavares demands a trade....
