New York Islanders Podcast: Trade Deadline Rumor RoundUp
The trade deadline is rapidly approaching. The New York Islanders, like every other team, has been linked to a few names. Who and whats the link?
As the build up towards the NHL trade deadline continues, the New York Islanders have been linked to a few players. It seems that the Islanders have so far been interested in Brian Boyle of the New Jersey Devils and Ilya Kovalchuk of the Los Angeles Kings.
Both players were previously acquired by now New York Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello while the GM for other NHL teams. And both are advanced in age. Boyle is 34-years-old while Kovalchuk is 35-year-old.
It’s not the sexy name we as Islanders fans were hoping for. But if both rumors are to be believed, and that the Isles were interested in both (Boyle has since gone to Nashville for a second-round pick), then it would seem that the Isles are looking for more veterans that are familiar with a Lou team.
In this weeks podcast we explore who else the Isles can go after in the lead up to the trade deadline.
What Else Do We Talk About?
Josh Ho-Sang of course. With his recent scratch by the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Ho-Sang’s name is o the tip of everyone’s tongue. What should the New York Islanders do with their former first-round pick from 2014?
How quickly does it take to change a culture? Cause it seems that Lou and Barry were able to do it in just under eight months? Is that due to the players being ready for a change or the because the guys they have to listen to have both won the Stanley Cup?
The Barzal line needs to be reshuffled. And on Wednesday we saw what Barry Trotz has in mind to get that Barzal line going again. Dal Colle will move up the depth chart while Beau will slide down. Is that a good thing?
