NHL trade rumors suggest the New York Islanders have their sights on Winnipeg Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers. But is the price too steep? Find out the latest here.

NHL trade rumors are swirling, and the latest buzz suggests that the New York Islanders may be aiming to bolster their offense by acquiring Winnipeg Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers.

Ehlers, a dynamic winger known for his speed and scoring touch, would undoubtedly be a valuable addition to the Islanders’ top-six forward group.

Islanders Trade Rumors Heat Up: Ehlers a Target?

The question is: what would it cost to bring him to Long Island? Some rumors have suggested a one-for-one swap of Ehlers for Islanders defenseman Ryan Pulock. While Pulock is a solid top-four defenseman, it’s unlikely that the Jets would be willing to part with Ehlers for just Pulock, they would want an additional sweetener to complete the trade.

The Islanders’ depleted prospect pipeline also makes it challenging to assemble a trade package that would entice the Jets. While Ehlers is entering the final year of his contract, he is still a valuable asset, and the Jets are under no pressure to trade him.

The Islanders have been searching for a consistent offensive threat to complement their existing core of Mathew Barzal and Bo Horvat. Ehlers, a proven goal scorer, could be the missing piece they need to return to Stanley Cup contention. However, the price for such a player is rarely cheap, and the Islanders will need to get creative if they want to make this trade a reality.
