Big Trade in the Works? Reports Say Yes | July

While the Islanders made their first “splash” in the offseason, and yes I do realize they did make two signings so far, rumors are swirling that a major move is in works that will make fans extremely happy.

Chris Botta reported on Islanders Point blank:

“Another hockey move is on the way. For what it’s worth, we were also told that we’re going to like this one. In our view, it’s the only way spending $3 million on Brian Rolston instead of somebody younger and better makes sense.”

As of now nothing has happened and people have begun to speculate and pass along rumors of what this could mean.

Infamous rumor site Hockeybuzz reported last night that a “strong” rumor indicates the Isles are interested in trading for Long Island native Mike Komisarek. As well, Eklund reported the Islanders have interest in Ranger left winger Wojtek Wolski.
(Editors Note: I am in no way say that the previous rumors are true or believe in their authenticity. Simply passing along speculation and rumors.)

Joe Yerdon of Pro Hockey Talk also speculated a possible move to acquire “a certain goal-scoring Russian winger making $6.7 million against the cap next season that would give them an offensive lift and help put them well above the salary floor.”

Right now we’ll wait and see what happens. Will update if anything comes of it.
