New York Islanders Add Center Depth with Martin Hanzal

Tanking may be the only option for the Arizona Coyotes, holding the 2nd worst record in the NHL. Ahead of only the lowly Colorado Avalanche, and what better way to do that then trade UFA Martin Hanzal?

Sure, you may think trading for Hanzal would cost a bit, but Hanzal can help the New York Islanders in every aspect of the game. He can screen the goalie using his large stature, he can play a 200-foot game, kill penalties, and put up points as well.

With Hanzal helping out both the power play and the penalty kill, the New York Islanders could find success on two major issues they’ve had and ride into the playoffs.

Martin Hanzal currently boasts 10 goals along with a lowly 19 points, which could possibly give the Islanders a chance to snag him for a cheaper price than you may think.

In my opinion, the Coyotes could be looking for a 3rd round pick and a mid-tier prospect.
