Can Oliver Wahlstrom be that missing piece for the New York Islanders in the 2020-21 season?

The New York Islanders need a goal scorer. Even though Brock Nelson had 26 this year and captain Anders Lee put up 20, the Isles finished the season with 189 goals (ranked 24th in the league). Again, the Isles need a goal scorer.

It’s why fans are either hoping to trade for Winnipeg Jets sniper Patrik Laine or to pull Florida Panthers pending UFA Mike Hoffman when the UFA period opens on October 9.
