Barzal for Eichel

Created by: DDoverChucky
Initial Creation Date: May 31, 2021
Published: May 31 at 11:41
Team: 2021-22 New York Islanders
Team Explanation
Barzal cannot lead the Islanders over the hump in the playoffs as the go-to guy. They need to try something else. Eichel will be traded, and the Sabres can't afford another O'Reilly disaster so they want an actual star player back not a bunch of 4th liners and late 1st round draft picks. Because of salary considerations Ladd is included.

Lol this is an awful take. Barzal is being held back by his coach, who’s playing him with Leo komarov. Eichel wouldn’t be able to produce with komarov on his line in the playoffs.

I could see Eichel-for-Barzal...but NYI has to pay for Ladd. Just leave him out and do one-for-one, with maybe small add from Isles.

There’s no reason for the isles to trade Barzal for Eichel

No, I don’t think so, but am just responding to what was posted.
How do they move Ladd?

The isles probably wouldn’t give up what it would take to trade ladd. I have a feeling he gets sent to Robidas island this offseason.

barzal is stuck with komarov so i don't completely blame him for his lack of production. trotz is a great coach but he's limiting barzals potential right now

No way, if you watch Barzal play the last few years you could tell he just doesn't bring it in the playoffs. Brock Nelson is much better every year!

They are getting Barzal so they either take Ladd or leave it lol. Ladd is like 1/100 part in this deal, not the reason you decline

Lmao, you can't be serious. Eichel is a far better player than Barzal.

No I wouldn't go overboard, this is a fair deal. When you trade Eichel you have to get someone who can replace Eichel back, that's why I refered to the O'Reilly trade that they can't just have a bunch of depth players and some late 1st rounder coming back.

Eichel is much better than Barzal, start adding some picks, especially if you want us to take Ladd.

Far better? No. He is better but Eichel wouldn’t be able to put the same numbers in trotz system, plus he’s injury prone. Isles aren’t trading barzal

You need to trade him anyways and you're not getting a better player than Barzal from another team so you will have to take Ladd in the deal unless you prefer another O'Reilly trade lol.

Eichel > Barzal. Ladd makes it worse.

This is something I've strongly considered, depending on:

1) The playoffs
2) The price

If Barzal starts producing (he was awesome last night), I can't see us moving him. If he has a bad playoffs and Lou believes the difference is Barzal -> Eichel, I mean I'd definitely love Eichel here.
