With the recent news that the Sens will trade Matt Duchene baring any surprises, should the islanders purse the 28 year old pending free agent? Yes, And Lou Lamoriello is interested. The Isles are among a bunch of teams who reached out to Ottawa, but what would it cost? Right now the Isles are blessed with depth and healthy players, so there is definitely room to move guys like Josh Ho Sang and Michael Dal Colle, but we don’t know what Lou is willing to give up, so we’ll see. The best shot at Panarin is through free agency, but the best shot at Duchene is right now.

🇷🇺🚀THE RUSSIAN ROCKET🚀🇷🇺 Pavel Bure was wicked fast 💨💨💨 and had some of the silkiest mitts of his generation. After being bought from CSKA Moscow in 1992 for $250k USD, he won the Calder in his rookie season with the Nucks, posting 34G-60P in 65 games. He helped the Canucks reach the Stanley cup finals in 1995, where he famously got robbed by Rangers G Mike Richter on a now famous penalty shot(😤😤🙄). One of my favorites of all time.
Josh Ho-Sang was just named the AHL player of the week, notching 4 goals and 2 assists in two games played, including a hat-trick. With Andrew Ladd and Thomas Hickey ready to return to the lineup, it seems like there is no room for Ho-Sang on the NHL roster. Should Lou Lamoriello attempt to trade Josh Ho-Sang before the deadline next Monday? If so, what do you think the Isles could get in return for him? Comment below! #Isles#Islanders#JoshHoSang#TradeDeadline

If the Islanders were to qualify for the playoffs, there’d be no doubt that it’d be a tough decision for Barry Trotz to choose between these two studs this season. Who would you want to start in goal for the Isles if we made the playoffs? Both goalies are rebounding from tough years last year, but I’d go with Robin Lehner. Thomas Greiss is really having a good season and he did win a playoff series in 2016 but I just feel more comfortable with Lehner in net. There’s really no wrong call here, but if I’m Barry Trotz I’m going with Robin Lehner. And who knows, with a one-two punch in Lehner and Greiss, don’t be surprised if both goalies start in a playoff series if one goalie has a bad game.
The Islanders are 29-2-1 when they score 3 or more goals this season. Defense wins championships.
