GLENDALE, AZ – JANUARY 22: Thomas Hickey

Arizona

In this scenario the New York Islanders are buyers. Arizona needs everything, so draft picks and prospects are the keys to their future.

Antti Raanta, G- Age,28. Height, 6-0. Weight, 190. Catches-Left.

Contract- $1 million. UFA after 17/18.

17/18 Stats- .921 SV%, 2.53 GAA, 36 games.

Raanta played second fiddle to King Henry for a while but now he’s starting in the desert. Arizona lets up a lot of chances, but Raanta still has a .920 save %. He’s becoming a starting goaltender, and the Islanders don’t have one of those.

Christian Fischer, RW- Age,20. Height, 6-2. Weight, 214. Shoots- Right.

Contract- $821,66. RFA after 19/20.

17/18 Stats- 13 goals, 15 assists, 71 hits, 57 games, 14:48 ATOI.

Picked 32nd overall in 2015, Fischer is a big boy who plays a power-forward game style. He performed well in the AHL and Arizona has shown him some PP time. The big kid shows a scoring knack and room to grow.

For Raanta…

Thomas Greiss– His career numbers are much better than he’s posting lately, maybe he needs a fresh start. The Coyotes trade down here, but Greiss should rebound.

2018 2nd and 4th round picks

Condition- if Raanta re-signs with the Islanders the 2nd round pick becomes a 1st round pick.

For Fischer…

Josh Ho-Sang– On talent alone the Coyotes trade up, but Ho-Sang’s playing style doesn’t match the Islanders needs; maybe Fischer is a better fit.

2018 5th round pick

Arizona could go for it if they value Ho-Sang. The picks should tantalize them as well. This way Garth isn’t giving away a first for a rental.

Lineup

Lee-Tavares-Bailey, Beauvillier-Barzal-Eberle, Ladd-Nelson-Fischer, Johnston-Cizikas-Clutterbuck

Ranta would start, though Halak has looked stronger of late, dragging his SV% up to a respectable .911.
