It seams very likely that the Islanders won't make the playoffs.....again. So the equation is too find a player that can play with Tavares. At the trade deadline Snow has to make some major moves if he wants to keep his fans. To create a solid first line. The first step is to aquire a Brooks Laich, Brook Laich is a smart forward with nice scoring touch -- he reached career highs of 25 goals and 59 points last season, Laich has developed a solid defensive game (plus-16) only 34 PIM in 78 games. He still has a future, but had expiernce in the NHL. Patrice Bergeron is also on the free agent market after the end of the year Bergerons career high in goals was 19 and 33 assissts last year, he played 73 games. Only playing 47 games in 2010-2011 season Bergeron has 15 goals and 21 assists. The Bruins are also faceing salary cap problems so if the time to trade for him is now.
