Trade Update

Looks like the Miller and Vanek trade for Nail Yakupov between Edmonton and Buffalo isn’t going to happen.

Buffalo has shipped Thomas Vanek to New York (Islanders), acquiring Matt Moulson, a 2014 1st round pick and a 2015 2nd round pick.

I can say Buffalo won the trade; the Islanders gave up way too much. The most I’d give up along Moulson would be one 2nd or 3rd round pick, maybe not even that.

What I would have done, actually, is make a trade for a solid defenseman. They have strong offense, but their defense is letting in 3.3 goals per game. If the trade involved Moulson, I would also acquire another offensive threat.
