2. Barring a massive swerve, Matt Duchene will be traded. There are undoubtedly more suitors than Columbus and Nashville, but they are the two most mentioned. I’m not convinced Winnipeg is interested at this time, and if I had to pick a stealth destination, I’d choose either Calgary or the Islanders. (If GM Marc Bergevin wasn’t on record as being against rentals, Montreal would be on that list, too.) There is talk that if he ends up in Tennessee, both player and team will work to make it a long-term relationship. Let’s see if Predators GM David Poile gets any extensions done in the near future with arbitration eligibles like Ryan Hartman and Colton Sissons, or Kevin Fiala — coming out of his entry-level contract. That would give him a better idea of the cap room he’s got to play with, assuming none of those players are involved in a potential trade. (Aside: Boy, do the Predators love Sissons. They can’t say enough good things about him.)

8. I think the teams with the best chances at signing Panarin long-term are Florida, Los Angeles, the Islanders and the Rangers. The only one that makes sense to take a shot at him for rental purposes is the Islanders. Boston hovers as a rental option, too. If the Islanders don’t get their top choices, GM Lou Lamoriello could consider old acquaintance Ilya Kovalchuk. Remember, the winger has control over his destination.

Pulock has the most goals at 6 toews is second with 5 in 30 leas games idt he can sit

I don't either and I don't expect him to. My normal sense of Islanders-impending-doom is only slightly tingling. Damn things on the fritz this year, what with all this unexpected success and all.

If toews sits all due respect to Trotz but that would be a moronic move of epic proportions. This defense has been arguably the best it has been in years without Thomas Hickey. There’s a reason for that.

Yeah and it was immediately dispelled and reported that he and someone else (I forget who) bought neighboring properties as Air BnB rental properties that were purchased back in November

That doesn’t mean much.....players buy them as investments and honestly what better tenant than a rookie on the preds. Nashville and the Carolinas are the new hot beds in real estate.

Pelech has to be the odd man out. But, i don’t understand the rationale of having to get Thomas Hickey in the lineup.

No Sbisa on waivers. But Staple/Gross did point out that even thought Ladd/Hickey were recalled, they haven't been activated from LTIR yet.

I won't be surprised if they place Sbisa on unconditional waivers for purpose of a buyout. Sending him to the AHL isn't really an option because of the veteran-limit and the fact that there are young prospects that need playing time.

Either a buy-out or a lame trade where they dump him to ARI or something for "future considerations" aka Chayka buys Lou dinner next year when we play the Yotes.

I don't think it's likely, but I wonder if they haven't explored trading Pelech. Not saying he'd have a ton of value, but his contract could be attractive for someone like a cap-strapped Western team that wants to add a long-term fixed-cost bottom pairing guy.

If they could get a third out of someone for him it might just be more ammo for the deadline. Highly doubt it happens because I'd rather have him as a 7th than see Sbisa get in the lineup if someone gets hurt.

Pelech would definitely garner you a 3rd, and it’ll probably be the one you guys gave up for Davidson.

Yeah I think having a long-term deal that doesn't cost much would probably be attractive to some teams that don't have a lot of breathing space. But that's risky for the Islanders, unless they plan on acquiring another veteran defenseman to be the 7th guy or are comfortable calling up Aho if need be.

I think they'll either:

A) Find a way to get rid of Sbisa and that's it

or

B) (and this is probably very unlikely) Keep Sbisa, trade Pelech and try and use the return from Pelech to acquire one of the veterans that's on the block to be the 7th defenseman

Probably Pelech, but it could also be time to give a veteran like Boychuk a rest. The Isles' d-men play a physical game, block shots, etc., and generally take a beating. Old-timers take longer to heal than these younger guys. They need Boychuk 100% healthy for what now appears all, but certain, the playoffs.

So I expect to see Hickey and Pelech rotating in and out of the line up, and at times spelling Boychuk and any other d-man who gets a little too battered.

I can't say I'm not jealous.

I was a big fan of Mike Peca, attended his first game back at the Coli after idiot Milbury traded him to Edmonton for Mike York. They gave him a nice video tribute at the first commercial break (which Peca appreciated) and the fans gave him a good ovation.

But this is a TOTALLY different situation....
