Cheap publicity for the Islanders to get their names in the paper.

If they cared about winning and their fans, they should have gone after the best players possible and not cared about timing.
So what was that whole Erhoff thing? We tried to get one of the top guys n it didn't work out. We weren't going to sign UFAs for the sake of signing UFAs...

So what's the lastest on this? Still rumored to be making a trade?

He plays with some much intensity.
He can help us with our DP problems.

1) Islanders fans complain more than any other fanbase. Botta wouldn't say something he didn't know was happening. This isn't some highschool blogger, it's a guy who writes for AOL, NYTIMES, and has one of the most successful sports blogs on the internet.

2) At no point in time did Botta say the deal was "imminent". He said that it was coming, and we would "like this one", and he was using someone elses words. So, if we use our logic here, someone else knows what the deal might be, and has relayed that message, which would indicate that the deal could still be worked on, right at this very second.

Step back from the ledge. The Islanders aren't going to make a trade to drum up interest from a bunch of hockey fans that should be voting YES anyways. It's to make the team better, and if we are parting with a 30 goal scorer, a 1st round pick, and one of our many talented prospects, we better be receiving a player who can step right in and contribute.

This isn't as easy as many of you think it is.

Sens have a glut of blueliners, and need to get rid of 1. Islanders are looking for defensemen.

A trade of "salary dumps" to help positions of need (Sens: F; Isles: D).
No chance. The Islanders could actually use Rolston, and they don't want Kuba. Rolston also seems very excited about his opportunity with the Isles and I can't see him waiving his NTC again so soon.

Garth said after the Reasoner signing he will trade for a top 4 dman so we've known this for a wile. By trading for Rolston, he has a top 9 winger surplus so Comeau is the obvious choice but I don't know how it will go down since Comeau is without a contract.

I think he could get 2-3M in arbitration.

After what Cogliano got I'm unsure. Garth has done well with getting guys under contract for cheap so I'm optimistic.
