    As for the moulson- vanek trade, the Isles gave them their 1st round draft pick this year. Considering they might not make the playoffs, it will be a high draft pick. I think aaron ness played well while he was up .

      No sir. That pick is conditional. If Isles are a top-10 pick this year, they have option of holding on to it and lose next season’s.

      Thought same about Ness.

      Thanks for reading!
