I didn't say that they should trade him, just that he's a very similar type of player to Wahlstrom and that Wahlstrom figures to be a much, much better player.

Trading Bellows as part of a package for a competent defenseman that isn't some recycled Islander trash heap would be a pertinent move.

What sort of package you thinking?

Think Lou & Barry are still evaluating. Got a couple weeks until the season starts but you'd think if he was going to make a move beforehand it'll have to be fairly soon. Get him used to the system, etc. IF he's going to make a move.

Yeah I didn't mean they need to trade him right now, but it should be something taken into consideration. Wahlstrom is a significantly better player than Bellows and it's not close. Not to mention that, as of now, Bellows is a LW (vs. Wahlstrom being RW) and LW is a position where he's going to be blocked by Beauvillier, Lee, and Ladd at the NHL level. I'm not trying to knock Bellows at all, but those are facts.

Wingers are replaceable and it's not too much to ask to draft/sign/etc... a center and plug him in at wing. This team needs competent defenseman and fast. I'd be looking to dangle Bellows out there and see who nibbles. If nothing good is available, then no harm in keeping him.

I'd be fine with that, but who's out there? Who else & what picks are you throwing in?
- Isleshockeyman

I said that on twitter not here, idk who they would go after but you need to give to get so i think he makes sense as he has value and we have a better version if him in wahlstrom

I don't know, honestly. I'm sure at some point in the next 365 days there will be a young-ish talented defenseman available and the Islanders need to be all over that. Or maybe they go for Trouba if he can't/doesn't want to work something out with WPG? Maybe Morrissey if Trouba does re-sign long-term?

I'm already considering this a lost year. At this point I'm just hoping we suck bad enough to end up with Jack Hughes.
