There’s little the New York Islanders need more than a puck-moving left-handed defenseman. Sure, getting a top-line winger that can pop in 25+ goals in a season would be key but they need someone to replace the gap left by Nick Leddy.

Not just anyone will do. They need a puck mover. That’s why Seattle Kraken defenseman Vince Dunn was the Islanders primary trade target.
