Icon35 Islanders acquire Travis Zajac for futures

To the Islanders:

Travis Zajac
$4.5 million

To the Capitals:

Kyle Wood
Mathieu Joseph
2018 1st

Can you tell that we're going for it?

We needed another top-six centre and we like Zajac a lot, especially at that salary. The Islanders' top-nine is essentially filled at this point, unless something else comes along. We have six forwards rated 73+, nine guys rated 70+, and past that, you're at the fourth line (which we're looking to upgrade on).

The forwards:

Ovechkin 78 - Zajac 75 - Perry 73
Vanek 71 - Stastny 73 - Parise 73
Komarov 71 - Nielsen 73 - Eriksson 70
Gionta 64 - Ryan 67 - Megna 62

Still looking for another top-4 guy, but we like the direction this team is trending. Thanks to Hes for the negotiations.

I plan to roll the first three lines rather equally
