Another New York Islander getting good reviews is Travis Hamonic. "A beast," said one scout. I mentioned this last year, but a couple of teammates said he just had to understand how good he is. Sounds like he's figuring it out.
Feb 2013, trade deadline approaches. Isles (in my game) are in 5th for now, but a 4 game losing streak out of 10th. The team is inconsistent, posting a 7-2 win over Pittsburgh then blowing a 5-0 3rd period lead to a 14th place team.
Sharks are in a similar situation in the west.
San Jose has offered Marc-Edward Vlasic, their 2013 1st round and 4th round picks for Mark Streit. Streit is set to go UFA at the end of the season. Vlasic is RFA and will end up making about what Streit makes now. Vlasic is 10 years younger than Streit.
Do you make this trade?
All of Suter’s preferred destinations, should he leave the Predators, are in the Western Conference – not the East.
#Isles had 3 prospects visit LI: Ds Ryan Murray and Matthew Dumba and Mikhail Grigorenko. Four more intvws scheduled in Pitt prior to draft
