As the New York Islanders look to add quality to the lineup trade rumors become incredibly enticing. Here are some of the biggest rumors and speculations and how the Islanders could take advantage.

In last week’s edition, I looked at how the New York Islanders could get in on trade rumors and speculations around Evgeni Malkin, PK Subban, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

I’m not looking at every trade rumor out there. I’m not interested to know if Griffin Reinhart’s name is being linked with a trade (OK, maybe slightly). I’m interested in rumors and speculation around players that could immediately help the Islanders.

It’s been a slow-ish week in the rumor mill this week, what with the Stanley Cup playoffs picking up again. But I picked a few that might peak your fancy.

Just as I did last week, I’ll consider if the Islanders have any desire to add the player. What the possibility of a trade with the Islanders might be, how much it might cost to make that trade, and what the Islanders might have to offer up to possibly make a trade.

As always, any trade scenarios aren’t absolute, but a way to start the conversation about what a trade package can look like. If you have a suggestion for a trade scenario add it in the comments.
