I am Nick McGuire and I am a new blogger of islanders hockey blog. I am a big Islander fan and I support them all the way. It is a pleasure to be a part of this blog. I am always on top of Islander trade rumors so I will update this as soon as I hear something. All I know as of now is that the Isles are most likely shopping Roloson. As we know, their plan was to trade Biron before the deadline but he has little value because of his 4-11-2 record. However, Roloson's record is 19-13-6 and  that's pretty good for a soon to be 41 year old next season. As of now, the Hawks seem interested in Rolie. The Isles could go either way. They could trade Roloson or they could trade Biron. It doesn't seem likely that they would trade both. Also, the Isles are shopping D Andy Sutton who is a 6'6" 245 pound 35 year old defensemen. In 54 GP this season, he has 4 goals and 8 assists. The teams that are interested are New Jersey and also the Hawks, but rumor is that the Bruins are looking for a defenseman as well.

So far this season, the Isles are 25-29-8 heading into the Olympic break with 58 points at the 13th spot. Lately, the Isles have had offensive trouble. Could they get a 2nd or 3rd liner for Sutton or Roloson? Maybe. Also, keep an eye on Jeff Tambellini who has been a healthy scratch for the most of the season. He will either be put on waivers, or maybe Snow will throw him in a package deal. Well see. If I hear anything more, I will post.
