New York Islanders Podcast: The Un-Tradable Edition
The New York Islanders have a ton of incredibly talented and promising young players. Are some of them like Oliver Wahlstrom untradable?
Last week I wrote a post about the untradable players in the New York Islanders system. Of course, Mathew Barzal was at the top of the list. But I included players three other players in the Islanders system: Oliver Wahlstrom, Noah Dobson, and Kieffer Bellows.
Some agreed with me, while others didn’t. Obviously, this wasn’t a cut and dry issue with everyone on the same page. Again, we all agree Barzal can’t be traded. But what about the three prospects? Surely if the right trade came up they could be let go?
And what of emerging top pair defender Ryan Pulock? Shouldn’t he be “untradable” as well?
Matt and I discuss why I selected who I did, who could make the list, and I talk about whether or not my list is definitive or not as well as bring up a trade scenario from a fan that makes a lot of sense.

What Else Do We Talk About?
Is Mathew Barzal properly rated? We know how good he is. We also understand that he’s only played a year in the NHL. But with more and more details about his outstanding 2017-18 seasons being revealed, are people properly rating the New York Islanders number one center?
Brock Nelson needs a comeback season. After only getting a single year deal from the Islanders, Brock Nelson has to show the Isles and maybe even the rest of the league he deserves not only more money but a long-term contract. Can he do it?
The Islanders have a less than ten percent probability of making the playoffs according to one analyst. While that isn’t surprising the New York Islanders, with new coach Barry Trotz, could be.
