Hamonic Out 4-6 Weeks; Decisions on Halak, Barzal May Speed Up

My take: Cue in Adam Pelech/Scott Mayfield? Part of me thinks Halak will be traded sooner rather than later now, and getting anything in return will be helpful. As for whom, it’s all up in the air. The goaltending needs balance and the Isles still need to make a decision on Barzal. Will he be sent down to juniors in favor of two more defenseman? This is why I think this eventual trade will be a multi-player and quite possibly a multi-team trade. Ryan Pulock has a better chance of returning early so Pelech (and possibly Mayfield) need to show what they have and if the two of them can help the Isles maintain a lead, Islanders manager Garth Snow may have some more moving pieces later in the coming months.
