The Colorado Avalanche are shopping their top offensive stars, but they have a steep asking price. Should the Islanders engage? SNY's Brian Erni and Andy Graziano discuss… 

Brian Erni, SNY.TV:

The Avalanche are seeking a "top-level" defenseman, a first round pick, and more in a deal for Gabriel Landeskog, according to TSN's Darren Dreger. Andy, have you heard if the Isles have had any talks with Avalanche GM Joe Sakic on Landsekog?

There's a crunch coming to the Islanders defensemen. That's because the upcoming NHL expansion draft, set to take place this June, is undoubtedly going to mix some things up on New York's blue line, and it should create some urgency for Garth Snow in the next few months.

The rules of the draft allow teams to protect either seven forwards and three defensemen, or eight skaters overall. Players with no-move clauses must be protected, so Johnny Boychuk isn't going anywhere. The Isles will also undoubtedly protect Nick Leddy and Travis Hamonic. And if they choose to protect Ryan Pulock, which they will have to do based on his eligibility if they don't want him exposed, that will leave them room for four more skaters (three once you factor in John Tavares).

It all adds up to the reality that Calvin de Haan and Thomas Hickey will both be left unprotected, which forces Garth Snow to make a decision. Either trade one (or both) before this year's trade deadline and not risk losing one of them for nothing, or roll the dice and watch his old assistant snatch one up for the Knights' inaugural roster.

The Avalanche are open to trading C Matt Duchene, with Colorado perhaps seeking a young defenseman or defensive prospects in return, reports Elliotte Friedman of TSN.

Duchene, 25, has 13 goals and 11 assists in 33 games this season.

He has 169 goals and 232 assists in 528 games spanning eight seasons in the NHL -- all with Colorado.

GEICO SportsNite: Isles' trouble 00:00:54
Islanders captain John Tavares and head coach Jack Capuano discuss how the team is looking to get by their recent struggles.

Andy Graziano, SNY.tv 

There are many questions concerning the New York Islanders these days, from network and local media, ownership, management, players and most loudly, fans. And almost all those questions are justified. But there is only one small problem - nobody seems to have any answers.

Yesterday, general manager Garth Snow held a meeting with season ticket holders at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. After making some canned remarks about having belief in the players and them still possessing plenty of fight, Chris Botta on Twitter remarked, "No real talk. No anger. No "I screwed up and have to fix this." No leadership. Just self-serving spin."

Snow has never been known to make any of his thoughts public through any discussion outside of his inner circle, whether that be media or the hard working season ticket holders that keep this franchise from crumbling at his feet. As real Snow as you're ever going to get would have been about a month back when he addressed reporters at Northwell Health Ice Center and proceeded to make a joke out of wasting two years of J.F Berube's career.

Even with a sloppy, 6-2 loss in Columbus on Saturday evening, the New York Islanders have still made quite a recovery from the first two months of the 2016-17 season. Heading into the end of November with a record of 6-10-4, the team recovered and has since won five of seven, picking up points in six of those games to climb back to a reasonable mark of 11-11-5 as we near the middle of December.

It might be not enough, however, to lift them back into the playoffs for the third time in four years, when all is said and done.

Islanders D Ryan Pulock has been activated off IR and sent to Bridgeport of the AHL on loan, the team announced Tuesday.

On Oct. 22, the team said Pulock would miss four-to-six weeks due to a lower-body injury, which Newsday's Arthur Staple later reported was a broken foot. 

Pulock, 22, has played in just one game this season.

The Islanders are pushing hard to make a deal for a forward, according to Arthur Staple of Newsday

New York (5-8-3) is currently in dead last in the 16-team Eastern Conference, and are tied with Boston for 19th in the league in goals per game at 2.50.

The Tampa Bay Lightning left Brooklyn last night and boarded a plane for Detroit, the next stop on their five-game road trip. They will take the ice tonight with a 9-6-1 record in the 2016-17 season. Three of those wins, by a combined score of 14-2, have come against the New York Islanders, who seem to have zero answers the past two weeks to the malaise that has taken over this team.

Head coach Jack Capuano has juggled lines. He's called out his players to the media. He's, not 'stick to the face' directly, but more like 'hook around the hands' directly, called out his general manager. He has shown some slight snark at reporters, then answered the same question the following week with calmness and resignation. In his seventh year as bench boss, it seems the expiration date, for which I believe all coaches have, has come. But will general manager Garth Snow act on it?

When Mathew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier showed up for their second training camp with the New York Islanders this fall, expectations were high. Management expected them to learn from their previous experiences and be even better, fans were excited to get a peek at part of the future offense and the players had one similar goal in mind - make the 23-man roster to begin the 2016-17 season. Neither was looking too far ahead, maintaining a level of maturity that belies their age of just 19.From the day the two first took the ice together at Northwell Health Ice Center, their futures were intertwined, both battling to be the one making the biggest impression on management and the coaching staff. They even practically mimicked each other in interviews - "I just have to be the hardest worker out there. Earn every inch of ice, win every shift, and make myself noticeable." is how Barzal and Beauvillier both laid out their game plans to SNY in separate conversations.As New York prepares to play its seventh game of the season tomorrow night in Brooklyn against the unbeaten Montreal Canadiens, they have, however, trended in very different directions that will have an impact on their place of residence for the remainder of the season, especially considering they have no real professional option outside of the big club. Neither is eligible for AHL consideration, being under 20 years of age and not yet completing four seasons on CHL hockey.

The New York Islanders won for the second time in three games on their current five-game homestand, taking a 3-2 decision from the Arizona Coyotes on Johnny Boychuk's first career shorthanded goal, a knuckle puck that eluded Coyotes starting goaltender Louis Domingue 4:24 into the third period.With Nick Leddy already sidelined battling illness, Ryan Pulock got a chance to rejoin New York on an emergency call up basis from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. After a so-so training camp, Pulock was sent back to the American Hockey League right before the start of the season, due to his waiver exempt status and the desire to take longer looks at Anthony Beauvillier and Mathew Barzal, in addition to not potentially losing Alan Quine, who, unlike Pulock, would have to be exposed to be assigned. His start to the 2016-17 season did not go well.

No announcement was made whether the move entails an injury to another player or not. 

Pulock, 22, reorded four points in 15 regular-season games last year and added three more points in the playoffs.

Ryan Pulock and Griffin Reinhart were expected to battle for a roster spot when training camp opened in September. When Reinhart was traded to Edmonton during the NHL draft it eliminated some of the competition for Pulock, but that doesn't mean he has a guaranteed spot on the Isles' roster.

"There's still that competition there," Pulock said after the first day of minicamp. "It doesn't give me a free spot. I'm still fighting every inch for a spot, so things really haven't changed that way. But I guess it's one less prospect fighting for that one spot."

The Islanders kick off their annual team mini camp on Tuesday at Nassau Coliseum. The week long camp will feature 48 Islander prospects and camp invitees. Here are five player to keep an eye on this week.

Michael Dal Colle:?The 2014 fifth overall draft pick will take his first spin on the Coliseum ice in an Islander uniform. Dal Colle was the consensus choice for the Isles to take at five. He is still at least a year away from making the jump to the NHL, but Dal Colle will be a big part of the Islanders offense in the future. During his 2013-14 OHL season with the Oshawa generals he scored 39 goals and 56 points in 67 games. His big size and stickhandling ability make him a threat in the offensive zone. It will be interesting to see that on display at mini camp, especially during Thursday night's Blue and White Scrimmage. Dal Colle has been pegged as a potential winger of the future to play alongside John Tavares.

Tonight the Islanders announced that 2013 draft picks Ryan Pulock and Alan Quine have both signed three-year, entry level contracts. Pulock was the Islanders first round pick in June, taken at 15th overall. He has played well in camp and will be with the team in Canada tomorrow as the Islanders have split squad action against the Senators. For the 18-year old, he will be headed back to the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL this season. His contract also won't kick in this year as it will slide (players who sign at 18 or 19 and are returned to juniors have their contracts slide one year, so it's sort of a four year deal).For Quine, his contract won't slide and starts this season. He's 20 years old as he was drafted for the second time this June. The Islanders took him in the sixth round but he was also previously selected by the Red Wings in the third round in 2011. He reentered the draft in the same way Brendon Kichton did; team and player couldn't get together on a contract, so after two years the rights lapsed. Quine will probably stick with the Sound Tigers and hopefully he can progress.

This August, Hockey Canada will be hosting its summer training camp, a tune up for the World Junior Championships that take place at the end of the calendar year. The Islanders will have "only" two defensive prospects at the camp after 2012 third round pick Adam Pelech pulled out due to a wrist injury.

For Pelech, this is the same injury that caused him to miss the Islanders prospect camp a few weeks ago and it's the third time he's injured his wrist. From the Erie Times-News, where Pelech plays in junior for the OHL's Erie Otters:

The Islanders just selected Ryan Pulock at 15th overall in the draft. Pulock is a talented defensman with an offensive twist and huge shot. His WHL team, the Brandon Wheat Kings, actually converted him from a forward when they drafted him in the seventh round of the Bantam Draft. For most players, draft day may be the most nerves and anxiety they've had to face in their life but for Pulock, draft day is likely not the toughest day that he's had to face.
