Icon35 Islanders acquire Zach Parise from Buffalo

To the Islanders:

Zach Parise
$6 million

To the Sabres:

Jordan Martinook
Markus Nutivaara
2018 3rd
2019 3rd

Parise becomes our fifth 73+ forward after Ovechkin, Perry, Stastny, and Nielsen, and completes our top-9 winger depth. As I said in the trade block thread, we now only need a centre to complete our top-9. Our group as a whole now looks like this:

Ovechkin (78) - Stastny (73) - Perry (73)
Parise (73) - Nielsen (73) - Vanek (71)
Komarov (71) - xxxxxxxx - Eriksson (70)
xxxxxxxx - Ryan (67) - xxxxxxxx

Keith (75) - Rielly (71)
Holden (71) - Larsson (69)
xxxxxxxx - xxxxxxxx

Anderson (78)
Johnson (71)

#AllIn

Thanks to SportsJunky for the negotiations over the last few days.

Parise never played a game for us. I intended to let him go UFA at the end of the upcoming season so I figured I'd try to restock the cupboards by dangling him out there. Martinook is a good bottom 6 guy and Nutivarra should develop into a decent Dman.

Thanks to TheScorpion for the deal.

Now all you need is your 3 David Jones's and your 2 Jyrki Jokipakka's then your roster is complete

I mean, I guess I could sign Jones for league minimum. I already have Jokipakka... too bad I missed out on Versteeg.

Anyway, hold on to your butts, folks, because this isn't even close to the last move I plan on making even this week or hopefully even today, if things go as planned.

Yeah, I know that. You don't have to keep reminding me. I have a plan for that.

I feel compelled to remind you because it seems that your priorities are elsewhere right now and it could be difficult to get one.

Hope you can get it done.

A couple of weeks ago I outlined a 22-step plan to improve my team over the course of the summer, up until the end of August. I created a list of players who I would be okay with trading, some trade and free agent targets, and an ideal roster with ratings. It looked something like this:

(76-78) - (73-76) - (73-76)
(71-74) - (73 Nielsen) - (70-73)
(70-73) - (70-72) - (70-72)
(68-70) - (67-70) - (69-72)

(74-77) - (71 Rielly)
(70-73) - (69 Larsson)
(68-70) - (68-70)

(78 Anderson)
(70-74)

Acquiring a first-round pick was step 17 on said list, because I figured it would be easier to do once I had traded Vrbata, which was supposed to be step 16 but actually happened before this trade, which was step 15. It is now at the top of my priority list.

I have literally everything planned out and at the front of my mind right now. You'll get your first-rounder, I'll make sure of it.

Because I had an idea of who I wanted to acquire and that person was a 78... also I tend to acquire wingers who can play both sides and I just outlined that roster putting my better guys in from left-to-right
