Here are three players that the New York Islanders could try to acquire at the trade deadline under the perfect, dream-like scenarios.

It’s just a few weeks until the NHL trade deadline and the New York Islanders are out there looking to bring in a top tier player that can help turn their offense around. An offense that is ranked 22 in goals-for in all situations and on 5on5 play.

At this point, we’ve seen the options likely to be made available at the trade deadline. A group that’s headlined by New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider. It’s not what you would call “star-studded”.

None of the players on the few trade lists we’ve seen will immediately transform the New York Islanders into a legit Stanley Cup contender. Sure, they could all help in their own way, but none of them move the needle forward to favorite status.

So, allowing myself to dream of trade deadline acquisitions, here are three players that could change the game for the Islanders.
