The Islanders tried to sign Johnny Gaudreau and Nazem Kadri last offseason but both players said no thanks to the Islanders.
What is the asking price for a Timo Meier trade?
Timo Meier is a pending restricted free agent with a massive qualifying offer of $10 million if he is not signed to a new long-term contract extension for next season.
Meier’s agent Claude Lemieux has stated his client has not had any talks with the Sharks on an extension.
Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports the New York Islanders should target Meier as he would fit in nicely on Mathew Barzal’s line.
Kurz stated it would cost the Islanders a 2023 first-round pick and a blue chip prospect to complete a Timo Meier trade as long as he signs a long-term extension with the Isles.
Meier is unlikely to re-sign with the Sharks and he will be in high demand at the NHL trade deadline if he is not traded anytime soon.
