On Saturday, New York Post’s Larry Brooks speculated that the New York Islanders could be one of three Metropolitan Division teams chasing Winnipeg Jets right-handed defenseman and restricted free agent Jacob Trouba. And that the Isles might have to give up Noah Dobson in order to complete the trade.
In no way shape or form, should the New York Islanders make that type of trade. Dobson is a right-handed two-time Memorial Cup winning defenseman whose poised to make the NHL this season.
There’s no reason to trade him for a 25-year-old Jacob Trouba.
