Barry Trotz indicated the New York Islanders will have to shake rattle the roster before their date with the Arizona Coyotes. Here are three options for Barry.

After being shutout for the second straight game, New York Islanders head coach Barry Trotz told MSG’s Shannon Hogan that he would rattle the lineup.

It certainly needs to be rattled. But how?

Before I get too far here, the best option for the New York Islanders to ‘rattle’ the roster is to bring in a new player and send one out. The players seem too comfortable, and there’s nothing that can rattle a group more than showing them their stay with the Isles can be temporary.

Unfortunately, Lou doesn’t strike as a GM who’s going to bring in a player just rattle things up.

So, barring a trade, how does Barry Trotz ‘rattle’ the roster as they head to Arizona to play the third leg of their three-game Western road trip?

Here are three options that Barry Trotz could use in order to get something out of his roster, and maybe get back to winning hockey.
