HKSR Posted May 4, 2022 Share Posted May 4, 2022 (edited) Highly unlikely, but I was poking around other team's rosters to see if hypothetically there could be a fit for Mr. OEL somewhere. I came up with this: To NYI: OEL Hoglander To VAN: Mayfield Islanders have these guys locked up long term: Anders Lee (31yo): $7M until 2025-26 Brock Nelson (30yo): $6M until 2024-25 Kyle Palmieri (31yo): $5M until 2024-25 JG Pageau (29yo): $5M until 2025-26 Casey Cizikas (31yo): $2.5M until 2026-27 Ross Johnston (28yo): $1.1M until 2025-26 Adam Pelech (27yo): $5.75M until 2028-29 Ryan Pulock (27yo): $6.15M until 2029-30 Folks... the Islanders are in this for the long haul. OEL (30yo): $7.26M until 2026-27 NYI will have a LHD group of Pelech and Aho going into this offseason. They need a solid Top 4 LHD. OEL fits their age group and time frame really well. NYI's best defenceman prospect is also Bode Wilde... another RHD. They clearly need more LHD in their system than RHD. The cost to them here is a pending UFA in Mayfield. Canucks could get first crack at extending him. The cost for unloading OEL and gaining a capable RHD in Mayfield? Hoglander.
