After what moulson said recently about wanting to stay with the isles, this would be a huge kick in the nuts to him & wuld probably deter any other free agent from signing here...and its not like there aren't enough issues with trying to sign ufa's as is. Now the team simply has no loyalty to players who wish to remain loyal & with the team.
Snow does this and its a huge FU to the rest of the team and esp the fans. Unless the return is completely one-sided, the trade can't happen...not for picks.
Matt Moulson is a good hockey player on a bad team. I really do not think Moulson is worth more than 3 million dollars a year.(3 years 9 or 10 million max) If Moulson is looking for 3.5-4.0 million a year for 3-4 years I can understand trading Moulson. I know its bad PR for the islanders to trade him but its better to get something (2 round pick and a prospect) than nothing. Snow has done jack sh-t but I would not blame him for trading Moulson. It might be easier locking up Parenteau 2 years for $800,000 per and making room for EL Nino and our top 3 pick in 2011 (Gabriel Landeskog???)
WE ARE WORKING ON A VERY TIGHT BUDGET! It stinks but it is what it is!
