Nilsson up. Poulin Down

http://islanders.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=707012

Seems kind of out of the blue. Was figuring Poulin would get the start tomorrow against the Panthers.
Would be really nice to get a goalie in the offseason.

This is an interesting development, I think Nilsson has been playing very well in the AHL lately, the team has been winning.

It could be a showcase with the timing of this move. Dun dun dun.

It's cause Nilsson owns the Devils.

Yeah and reward and that Poopoo hasn't played in a while anyway.

Hopefully to Buffalo for Halak in a deal.

not sure why we'd trade for Halak at this point...hes a FA, just sign him in the offseason...

Staple suggested it was to get Poulin some games because he hasn't played for 3 weeks.

Makes sense. I think we're all getting antsy with the TDL coming up.

Staple has also said that he doesn't see Poulin back next year and suggested that the Isles will try to trade his RFA rights at the draft. Probably don't have any suitors. Could certainly be so that teams get a look at him, even at the AHL level.

Oh ok. I didn't see that.

He didn't say that today, but he talked about trading Poulin in a live chat in January, and confirmed again last week that he doesn't see him back next year. The Isles could just not give him a qualifying offer, but a trade is a possibility. Not sure about a deadline deal, but who knows.

In all cases, we should try to get players into the fold with out track record in free agency...assuming Garf talks turkey with Halak's agent before any kind of deal, and see about his interest in being the man here...

That and the fact that Nilsson has played pretty well the past 10 games.

Nilsson has been performing really well for Bridgeport so it's a good reward for him to maybe get a start tomorrow. Also as others have said, Poulin has barely played in weeks so it gives him starter minutes for a while to get back in sync with things.

I personally had big hopes for Nilsson prior to his whole year of problems which clearly effected him. Hopefully he gets back on track and turns into something for us.

Yeah. Teams do this for conditioning purposes all the time. Probably see Kevin back after he gets a couple of starts.

Buffalo has Hackett, they don't need Poulin or Nilsson.

Maybe nabby might be moved? Trying to get Poulin some games before he has to start? Thought I read Snow said he wouldn't Nabby though

Why not send him down during the Olympic break?

For me personally, Nilsson has always had the higher upside but Poulin has been a little farther on in his development.

Poulin hasn't progressed this season, and from what I've read Nilsson has been good of late.
