The New York Islanders are currently the front runners for Matt Duchene, and here’s why.
The Islanders protected Adam Pelech, yes you read that correctly.
“First and last NHL goal”
Here’s the Deal
Islanders leave Brock Nelson, de Haan, and Bailey left exposed on purpose. The Islanders will send a first round pick over to Vegas, but Vegas CAN’T take any Islanders.
The Islanders then trade the unprotected players for Duchene or Eberle (hopefully Duchene)
Some how, Garth Snow is going to screw this up.
I suck at my job.
