ESNY’s 5 gif reaction to New York Islanders win vs. Philadelphia Flyers

The New York Islanders (and New Jersey Devils) were in the news on Wednesday after engaging in a blockbuster trade.

Veteran forwards Kyle Palmieri and Travis Zajac were sent to the Islanders in exchange for forwards A.J. Greer and Mason Jobst, a first-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft and a fourth-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.

The Islanders had emerged as one of the favorites to acquire Palmieri, but the inclusion of Zajac in the deal came as a surprise.

Palmieri, who plays the same position as and has a similar skill set to Anders Lee, will fill a hole and Zajac will be a nice veteran presence and will contribute to a team that is looking to go all the way.
