question is what do the Isles really have to offer Phoenix
make that happen? The Isles/MM have made it clear they are
I've heard that Phoenix wants to unload Tkachuk's contract but no one
besides the Rangers wants him. I'm not saying the Isles should go all out to
get him but I don't want to see Tkachuck going to the Rangers for Radek
Dvorak. Once in a while in all sports you will see a high priced player get
traded for basically nothing because a team just wants to unload a salary,
and what I am saying is the next time that happens the Islanders better be
involved atleast a little bit. Until the Islanders payroll is at a
respectable figure there should never be a talented player going to a team
other than the Isles for future considerations, late rd. draft pick, a 3rd
line player, $, etc..

The going to
keep these kids and stay within the program. Any building
done thru unrestricted free agency, the Isles are not
overpay anyone so do not expect anyone to be jumping for joy
an offer here. Many players will use the Isles offers as
get resigned or a better offer from a team they really want
I think this is a situtation where many of these top players
good situtations and would prefer to stay with their own
we'll see lots of articles both ways.
