+ = Best looking Islanders duo ever.

Upon closer inspection, these two must be related...

I doubt Chicago does that. They don't need Biron, Huet is playing well and I think they like their backup.

Weight is always injured and adds nothing to their line up; they already have Madden and a few other vet players that are much better than Weight at this point in his career.

That leaves Freddy Meyer, who really doesn't add anything to their team. They have a sick defense, Campbell, Keith, Seabrook, Barker, and two other guys, Meyer would be sixth defenseman which he is.

So that trade makes zero sense for Chicago and we would be ripping them off. The only way that trade would make any sense is if they needed a goalie, which they don't. You can't get valuable young assets like Skille & Barker for spare parts and a goalie that no one wanted this summer.

Hjalmarsson and Sopel.

So as a Hawk fan reading this I take it Sopel is to Isles fans what Jarolsav Spacek is to Hawks fans?

Spacek his last tour with Hawks was really unhappy and didn't get along with management or team and had some problems with fans near end.

Sorta burned his bridges

Bingo. Spacek is a quality d man, just not effective with the Hawks. Sopel coming out of the lockout looked lost and unhappy to be here.

I could probably count on one hand the Isles' players from the last 10 years that I'd want to reacquire in trades. Onward and upward. Let's not relive the glory of 2004. There should be a sticky thread for suggestions to reacquire players, and it should be locked.

Scotty Bowman's son is the Hawks gm.Bowman works for the team as an advisor.

If the isles and Hawks do make a Biron trade,I wouldn't be surprised if the deal is expanded and includes Bergenheim($862,000).1-2 yrs ago the Isles were playing the Panthers in FL.Bowman was scouting the Panthers for an upcoming Panthers/Red Wings game.

Bergenheim was the best islander on the ice.The next game,the radio announcers were talking about how Bergy impressed Bowman,who'd asked them about him.

I could be wrong with the timing but Scotty Bowman has made positive comments before about Bergenheim. I believe it was Al Arbour night when he coached his 1500th game. Hope it doesn't happen. Big Bergenheim fan here.

I would think the Hawks would shy away from any player that will be a RFA in the next two seasons. If they do sign all three players in question, I think they dump salary in a win now mind set leading them to look for complimentary UFA with some picks sprinkled in.

Bergy makes under $900,000.It's not like he's going to be breaking the bank on his next contract.

Yep, Bowman has talked about him on a few different occasions. All overwhelmingly positive.

Dave Bolland or Troy Brouwer are guys I'd like to see the Isles try to pry away from the Hawks if there are going to be any dealings between them. I don't know about Bolland now though due to the back surgery.

I'd Like Troy Brouwer, but the guy I want the most is Byfuglien. Brings size and grit to our forwards.

I really like watching Niklas Hjalmarsson, very underrated defenseman in my opinion. I would love to see him suit up for the isles one day.
