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.
