Here is the concept and rules behind "Offer Friday"...
Every Friday I will create a FanPost dedicated to a certain NYI need and suggest a few players that may fit that spot via trade. In the comments section, I will put each player/asset and you reply to that original comment with what you would offer - much like we do for FIG (First Islanders Goal).
If there is another player/package that you think would address the problem/issue then start a new comment with that player/package and people will comment below on what they would trade for that player.
For each player/package you add, include in the body why you think that person would fill the void we are discussing each Friday. Offers don't have to be just trades - it can be how much you would offer a UFA to come to the NYI.
This week's Offer Friday discussion - TOP-4 DEFENCEMAN
This has probably been one of the most discussed topics among Islanders fans -- the need for 1-2 top-4 defencemen to bolster our blueline with different talents. Here are a few ideas for a blueline fix (no - Suter is not an option sorry).
1). Sign UFA defenceman Jason Garrison to a 4 year, $18m contract.
2). There have been some speculation that Garth Snow will be looking to make a splash by trading for Keith Yandle. PHX is very deep in defencemen and defence prospects but they lack sufficent offensive depth. NYI trade 2012 1st round pick, Nino Niederreiter, and Michael Grabner for Yandle.
3). Package a trade for PK Subban -- NYI trade 2012 1st round pick and Nino Neiderreiter for Subban. This may very well entice MTL as they will have the 3rd and 4th overall picks enabling them to build for the future by grabing a stud at offence and defence in this draft.
4). Sign Matt Carle to a 5 year, $24m contract.
