    NHL gm's say Islanders forward Josh Bailey is a trade target. 9th overall in 2008. Under contract thru 2017-18. Would take a lot to get him.
    Would take a lot to get him? Seriously?? I think he's safe.

    Bailey is a good player. Not flashy, but solid on both sides of the puck. He's just been poorly developed/coached, utilized...

    Fair cap hit.
    I'm sure a player similar to him would get 4M on the open market.
    I'm not knowledgeable enough to know for sure but he's perceived as a quality two way player if I'm not mistaken.

    What's "a lot" to the Islanders though really??

    I would think "a lot" would be: Moulson, a top flight 1st round pick and a 2nd rounder for a pending UFA(Vanek) would be "a lot"..

    The way the Islanders trade, he should be an easy giveaway for someone.

    I think we're missing what's important here. Bailey could be had for free in fantasy hockey, pretty much. So get him and stash him, and see how this plays out. He still has potential, still very young.

    What we are really missing here is that Dreger is a buffoon and rarely has any of his rumors turn to fact... Arthur Staple has already dismissed this rumor as garbage... though I do agree that Bailey still has a the talent to turn things around. A year ago the Isles and rumor mongers had Okposo on his way out after a 4 goal season...

    I think you may be in the minority when it comes to thinking Dreger is a buffoon. It's not like he is Eklund and just throws out rumors on a daily basis to generate traffic to his site.

    And Staple didn't rebutte Dregers statement. Read this again and read the first few words.

    Further to @DarrenDreger tweet about Josh Bailey: Garth Snow could easily dump Bailey for little return. No chance of that. #Isles
    He said "further to" meaning, to add to....

    Dreger said Bailey could be had but it would take a lot to get him. Staples is saying that Snow isn't going to give him away.

    Sounds like they are both saying the same thing but saying it differently. If anything, it sounds like he's solidifying Dregers point.

    Yeah, I happen to think Dreger and MacKenzie are two of the better "insiders", and I have found both to be pretty reliable.

    Dreger is closer to Eklund than he is to MacKenzie.
    Buffoon is fitting.
    Maybe I am in the minority - wouldn't surprise me.
    Doesn't mean I am wrong.

    I sure wouldn't say you are right in calling Dreger wrong here though, especially if you are referring to Arthur Staple's tweet.

    That is a typical Dreger comment... What did he really say - what news did he break? So-and-so is available if teams are willing to overpay. Name one player in the league that statement wouldn't apply to. Thanks Dregs. Dreger is in the entertainment industry and it is what he does... he reports hockey news and throws out obvious statement from time tot time that don't really say much... stirs up hits on the TSN website with crap. He is the exact same as Kypreos. Guys who go blah, blah, blah without ever saying anything of substance.
