Pumpkin, the isles traded conditional 2015 picks in the Vanek trade, not 2014 picks.

No..it's 2014... If it's in the top 8-10 the isles can defer to 2015

If anyone saw Austria in the Olympics you'd have to say no to Vanek but a big yes to Grabner!


"What are you guys doing?" Reggie Dunlop
"Putting on the foil coach" Jeff Hanson
"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop
"Make sure they don't leave the bench!" Reggie Dunlop.

Pumpkin, yes i miss read it. But as you correctly linked, if the Isles have picks in the top 8, the picks get differed to 2015. right now the Isles have the 5th worst record and Taveras is out for the season. So in the end, yes the 2015 picks will go to the Sabres.


Andy, is Grabner available via UFA? Don't think so. Also Vanek was hurt right before the olympics started. Not sure on the details, but that could have something to do with his performence and he was also the main guy on Austria's team, which also has something to do with it. But how a player plays in the Olympics has NOTHING to do with how they play in the NHL. To date Vanek has been much much better in the NHL than Grabner has.

Well Vanek is also older, according to some Isles fans they are using Grabner as a grinder and that's not what he is. To be honest I don't want to pay a premium for a rental and I highly doubt Grabner will be available, with Vanek gone (soon), Tavares out who other than Okposo should do the scoring for this team ?

Maybe with z being out maybe we will be sellers now. Not that we have much to sell lol. Quincey is about all really.

Weiss and franzina suppose to be back...but I'll believe it when I see it.

I'd move Q at this point. Might as well get SOMETHING for him after we picked him initially and then traded a 1st for him. I think Marchenko/Almquist should get some more time up and see if we have something there. We can just roll 2 d pairs heavily with sheltered minutes for the bottom pairing like we have been.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

islanders have the choice so it could still be in 2014
If they keep the 14 pick they run the risk of giving the Sabres McDavid

I actually don't mind this idea. He is a cheap option and might be able to turn it around with Detroits good passers

Pass. Don't want him around the youth. Terrible attitude.

I think Cammalari would be a nice addition for the right price. He has a history of being clutch when he had good players around him, which he would have in Detroit. It would help to balance the top 6, and he can be a winger or centerman, which will be significant if there are any injuries (which there better not be for the rest of ever given the amount we have had already).

With Z out for the stretch run, he'd be a great fit. Comes thru in the playoffs too, he's a little guy but tenacious. Depending on price, he could be a great guy to pick up.

Just cause he'd rather pack lips and crush handles of bacardi then text supermodels back, doesn't mean he has a bad attitude.

Too add to that, he plays a Babcock kind of style, so he would be able to adjust to Babcock's demanding 2 way system. Also, a great point by you in that he has a history of being a big playoffs performer. I wouldn't mind a move to stabalize our D, but I think this move would benefit the Wings more than any other, for the right price.

Honestly,I'd rather see Jurčo and Pulkkinen playing top line minutes than the all star Heatley in the Wings jersey.
