<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Amakiir</b></div><div>It's one thing to say Marner doesn't fit your team, it's another to say they're worth the same. We'll see what happens but I think Pulock signs a 2 year deal. I'll take your word for it that it'll still be 6-6.5M. I'm not sure if Nylander would be a good comp then, Nylander still has a lot of upside. And holy **** would he do well under Trotz. Scare the lazy out of his bones. As for your D game, I've heard Islanders fans split on this. You guys have too much D and need offensive help.
I will say, based on what you're saying, I see what you're saying about the value here being way too low. Thanks</div></div>
I didnt say anything about Marners value, just that I wouldnt do the trade 1 for 1. However I was implying that its not out of the ball park value wise. I think higher than Nylander, Lower than Marner. Im not sure that Nylander can play in Trotz's style. Trotz and Lou ask you to sacrifice personal for team. If you can buy in you can thrive, if not you sink. The Islanders do have too much D, right now its a LHD abundance until Dobson can take a top 4 spot, then it will be a RHD abundance. Pulock and Mayfield are 2 very important pieces for the team right now, niether one can be replaced internally till Dobson is ready.
I dont think the Islanders will do anything short term with Pulock, I think you go short with Barzal and long with Pulock. Barzal will play against the short term deal while hoping for a bigger contract after the Covid affected CAP ends. 3 years or less at 7-8 Million now, 9-10 later.
