    Nope, there is me. Gorton said the first guy every team calls and asks about is Skjei. Seems Gorton and the Rangers are not very interested either.

    There is another board where trading Skjei is like an obsession. You'd think more fans (who like to play GM) would actually evaluate a players skills, attributes, age, health, contract status and past successes in a player's first couple of years to make a better assessment of their value.

    It would not be a bad assumption that the Rangers have interest in Trouba, to pair him with Skjei. Not to swap them and leave the left side barren. If Hayes was to go anywhere before the season, the Jets would be the spot. With Trouba's 8.5 ask, Stasny's exit, and a bunch of other big signings necessary, the Rangers may be waiting out the Jets. Feels like only Toronto can compete with us for Trouba. Now that FA's are signed and ROR has been moved, what other good C's are available?

    Love it and like it has been mentioned in this thread Toronto is going to be sick.

    But Isles fans can be just as stupid and moronic as their own Front Office, so...

    I should've reworded that sentence. JT left because he wanted to fulfill a childhood dream of his to play for his hometown team and the Isles would have had a big cap hit considering the contract given by TOR if he got the same contract by NYI

    Honestly, I think they are fine. Barzal will be a stud and they recently had an amazing draft. If they can do things right (With Lou and Trotz, Im sure they will) they will suck for 2-3 years with us and start being competetive at the same time.

    Would be fun with a NYR/NYI playoff matchup sometime in the future.
