Team Explanation
Jets make a deal with TB. Not sure how this one works out as Gourde isn't exactly playing up to his contract, but I think it's a risk worth taking if it lands the jets Cirelli
Leddy deal is a nice add IMO to bide time for Heinola and Samberg
Lowry had to go
I know Im over the cap, but i just didn't want to go back and skim money from contracts I already signed

I don't know anything about Sami Niku but I would say isles would rather a forward because of their D depth. Again, I don't know anything about him

I would think the Isles try to use Leddy to rid themselves of another contract. If Niku can get flipped and shed a Komarov or something, fine. As a pure cap shedding move this would work for the Isles but I think it's only about halfway of what they're ideally trying to accomplish

Niku has upside of being a 3rd pair D-Man, Isles would be better off getting a 3rd for Leddy and not taking on a contract.

Gourde will never waive for Winnipeg though so this falls apart immediately.

The Jets and Islanders seem ripe for a blockbuster trade imo.

Agreed. Leddy is one of those contracts they want to rid themselves of so I doubt packaging another 3 plus mill is an option. WHo out there can take on 8+ mill and not send anything else the islanders way? THis deal saves the islanders 4.5 for this season and 5.5 for next. They desperately need to make space for their RFA's
