Good question. Really haven’t thought about it because, I ultimately believe he will stay a Jet for this year. He will probs get awarded an arbitration deal at 5 to 5.5 million and then they can try to work out an extension the next year.
If he wants out then I think he will be traded next year. Just my opinion.

- nyisles7

Most likely the case makes sense for the Jets. I think it’s safe to assume he wants out at this point though.

It's a good question Cpt. You would think the Isles would need to give up Pulock in a deal?. I think Trouba would help but I'd rather not move Pulock. I'm not sure if the Jets and the Isles are a fit. What can the Isles give up the Jets need without further weakening the Isles?
- ses111

Yeah there’s nothing there. Not good trading partners we just signed Pulock to a pretty good contract and the kid has obviously got some potential so I’m a little wary trading him for a defenseman who by all accounts is looking for big money. Not happening jets aren’t looking for forwards.

Isles need to decide on a direction first and what to do with Lee and Eberle. I think the best thing is to do play things out and see what Barry can do with certain players. The question is will Malkin be willing to sit tight. Malkin seems like he is awake now and is not going to want a long rebuild and I doubt Lou wants that as well. No JT and no Belmont yet really hurts a quick turnaround though.

Lou and Malkin agreed to do whatever their plan is before Lou was hired. None of us know what that plan is but you can bet Lou is going to deliver on whatever it is they agreed to.

Agreed, after Pulocks play at the end of last season (with Hickey ) I wouldn’t want to trade him either.
I can’t wait to see Trotz’s influence on this Team and it’s players.

This is a good reason not to rush into trades 7. Let Barry see what he has to work with first.

Trotz and Barzal are the only things keeping me interested next season. Ho Sang too if he makes the team.

I would still love to trade Lee and Bailey while their value is high. I don't see either of them putting up the numbers they did without JT. I don't think it will happen.

I would at least explore deals Jimmy. Going to be very interesting to see what happens with Lee and Eberle. This is why Isles need to know what direction they are taking. If the team gets off to a bad start, have to think we start seeing deals.

I can see Lee putting up 40 with barzal as hes a redirect and rebound type of goal scorer. Bailey made a lot of primary assists too although I think his points drop to mid 50s

I don't think they should break up the Beau Barzal Ebs line. I'm not sure who they could put with Lee and Bailey.

Really think Kovar is the key to the season... he should be on that line with Lee and Bailey...if he can find chemistry with them could be a solid 2nd line.. if not then unload Lee and Bailey..still think you keep Ebs would hate to see him off that Barzal line

Nelson did have some chemistry with Lee years ago. He may work with Bailey and Lee.

I think they need to make a decision on Lee before the season starts. Either he signs or is traded. I don't want to see another JT situation.

I think you give him 1 or 2 preseason games... have to see how that 2nd line is going to work...but we can not have another guy go for nothing seems about the only thing the isles are good at .... has to be some value for someone

Lee seems like the kind of guy who would be a proud captain and stay here but i thought that about the last captain and hes a poop stain

If he gets 45 or 50 points and can play a half way decent two way game then he is a home run. My expectations aren’t exactly high for this guy if he pans out than great. Gave up no assets for him and if he can contribute at that level it’s an absolute steal.
