Trading Mathew Barzal straight up to the Colorado Avalanche for Matt Duchene would be a bad move for the New York Islanders.

Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders search for a second line center continues. The role has been juggled unsuccessfully since Frans Nielsen’s departure last summer.

Blog: Two Questions To Be Answered

View From Section 317's picture

Since the NHL expansion draft, the New York Islanders have made some moves over the last few weeks to slightly show many fans that the time to go further than just the first round is now and that the salary cap is a key factor heading into this season. There were some moves that I was expecting and then their were some surprises. So since we’re now into the middle of July and where down to what I like to call “water cooler” talk, there are two questions that need to be answered: Are the Islanders a better team than from season’s end? The second, do I think the Islanders are done trading? This article will cover items such as my thoughts on the expansion draft, the NHL draft, any trades that were made and the coaching staff additions and after going over all of them, you should have a better picture and maybe an answer or two concerning the season.
