With the NHL trade deadline coming today we figured we would look at the worst trades in New York Islanders history.

Today at 3:00 pm will be very telling for the New York Islanders. They will either stay put at the trade deadline, like many are expecting, or they’ll make another move to try to get themselves over the hump and out of this rut.

During the Garth Snow era, he hasn’t made many moves at the deadline, especially any of impact. It got us thinking what are the worst trades this team has made.

A lot of obvious ones jumped out right away but after some research, it jogged some not so fond memories of Islanders trades gone wrong. Luckily, not too many of these are in recent history which you can put down as a plus.

Also, keep in mind these are just 10 trades that classify as the worst trades in Islanders history. These don’t come in a power ranking order, but if you would like to rank them in the comments or in your head that’s okay too.

I’d like to thank site Co-Editor Mitch Anderson for the assistance on this one. Without further ado here are the 10 worst trades in Islanders history.
