Lol no Isles are not offering Barzal.....

Secondly Ghost is likely going nowhere and seriously? One time Calder finalist? You can only be up for that award once.....

Then they'd better start trading and buying guys out. 8M isn't close to enough if they plan on keeping their 1C and 1D. Something has to give. Laine's cap hit this season isn't bad. Tho I watch lots of Jets games and he is abysmal in every scenario other than shooting. If this happens on a 1 for 1 trade, the Jets are clear winners.

Bruceflyers is just a complete idiot. I have my doubts he's actually a Flyers fan because almost without exception, they almost always make sense with their comments and have a rational thought process. Something you sir fail to qualify for. Do you sit there typing and think....oh this will be clever. It is not. Give it up for all our sakes

More crap from Eklund.
Dude, I am right more often than you are, and I don't claim go have ANY inside NHL sources.
It's embarrasing, man.

Haven’t seen a season ticket holder in a long time


I think it’s wrong that the bloggers have to pay to put up their blogs to get exposure.

Interesting to read how much more Barzal’s perceived worth is vs Laine. Barzal has 59 goals in 3 seasons (plus a 2 game trial). In Laine’s 4 seasons, if you subtract his BEST season with 44 goals, he still has 94 goals over his 3 worst seasons.
With the same math, subtracting the same season (his best for points). Barzal has 207 points while Laine has 177.
I’ll take the big bodied natural sniper who really REALLY improved his 200’ game last season over the creative centre Barzal. If anything, it’s a coin toss with no sweeteners needed from either side. If neither player wanted to sign with their current team, maybe this makes sense. But I see no reason Barzal would want out, and Laine is not shy to speak his mind. If he asked for a trade, we’d know about it. He wants big money, no doubt. But I stand by my previous statements... the Jets are NOT trading Laine right now. The only time I could see it being possible is pre-draft next year if Laine wants $10M+ (which he might) and Jets aren’t willing to commit. For right now... they’re keeping the sniper for under $7M. Eklund needs clickbait, and we always fall for it to call him a moron.

Getting Laine to play with a brilliant playmaker like Barzal makes sense. Trading your best forward for a great but streaky scorer? Not so much

You’re obviously not up on current Islander events. Search UBS arena at Belmont park, maybe you’ll learn something.

First off... grab a dictionary and take a peek at what that word actually means. Second, the word you were looking for to end your uneducated sentence was “drivel”. Dribble is what your mother does to earn the money for your allowance.

Read a book. Cheers.

It would make zero sense for the Isles to trade Barzal.

WPG fans would be happy with Barzal and a pick for Laine. Maybe NYI will throw in Pulock if we give ‘em Roslovic and Niku too?

That’d be aces.

Im sorry but I cant see any reason why The Islanders would trade Barzal for Laine. Even more so Barzal AND a pick.

First off, it would be Laine and a Pick for Barzal if it was even to be thought about.

Second, The Islanders are not trading Barzal for Laine, that would be insane.
