Was thinking something along the same lines. Wouldn’t be cheap.

No it won’t be but word is Ottawa offered a 8 mill for 8 year deal to Duchene.

It’s seems a bit low looking at what he could fetch in FA however it’s an 8 year deal if Ottawa makes it which is 1 more than he could sign as a FA with others.
9 mil per 7 year deal is lower than the overall eight year 8 mil deal The Sens could ink.
Going to be interesting what happens with Duchene. I don’t think he’s staying in Ottawa, and would be a fit with the Islanders. Just my opinion.

I agree but at what price trade wise and salary wise if he comes signed? We’re going to have to sign Barzal doubt he takes a bridge deal so we could have potentially close to 20 million into two players. I know it’s the way it is today but that’s a chunk of change. Wish we had some semblance of center depth.

Have to pay to play with the big teams. Going to be interesting how Lou and Co does and I have 100% faith in him and his team, look what they have done up till now.
Also the Isles go on a nice run in the POs the Players will want to stay which is a huge change and makes it easier to keep your players and entice others to want to come.

As far as C depth with out injuries we are good and our record shows that. However if you add Duchene to the mix We are one of the strongest in the league down the middle. My opinion.

Yeah sure but we have some games to play still so it would be great to have some depth. Adding Duchene with term would be huge like you said.

Could be but most likely just a momentary step back. They were playing great hockey up to five games ago.

Every team goes through tough patches in a season. The thing that has impressed me the most with Trotz Other than his system and accountability of the players is keeping these tough patches or bad games to a minimum instead of it lingering to 10 plus games.
Very impressed on how quickly he has addressed this with the Isles this year so far.

Ek has the sens giving duchene a take it or leave it offer with in the next two weeks or they are moving him. Now its ek but with duchene able to leave anyways this makes sense he has no loyalty to that team and has said he wants to do what tavares did. I think the isles stand a chance here, have the space and players/picks to offer

So if you are looking for PO rentals Kunitz is a guy who has won and is good in the POs and I think would only cost you a 3rd rounder.
You do It?

They made him a 8 mil / 8 year deal.

I would think they give him 2 weeks at the most to either accept or they will start working on moving him for the best deal. As a rental they aren’t going to get nearly what they gave up for him.
As Cpt and I were discussing before this has a chance for a sign and trade which typically are tough.
Very interesting to see how this plays out.

He would look real good in an Isles Jersey.

With Barzy and Tito and drop Bailey back with Komorov and Fill?

Just a guy who shows up in the POs and I don’t think would cost more than a third and certainly give you more depth.

I mean I know your man @Ladd28 will be back soon so we may not need him
