Once Dobson gets traded for Josh Anderson, the Islanders would need another RD

Apparently that’s not enough for Anderson.

Im more confused of PK Subban to Toronto

As if he came he would be a press box bench warmer for us

Even if the leafs had room for him he’s not what they need. Subban cares more about his brand than winning. He’s a lazy player

These predictions are interesting, but I'd like to see how much you think they're going to sign for.

Can Tampa even afford to keep Palat or Paul? I feel they would have to make a couple trades to keep both. Other than for Killorn (who I think is certain to be shipped out by the Lightning), who exactly will the Lightning be willing to move?

I agree I think I've oversimplified Tampa's cap situation, though I do think each player's most likely individual destination is Tampa even though it's probably not compatible.

There's been a lot of talk about McDonagh. I personally don't think it will actually happen, but there's a higher chance of him being moved than several other players (save for Killorn, who I agree is on his way out) if they do need to make multiple trades to keep Paul and Pally.
