With the majority of unrestricted free agents finding new teams, the trade market becomes a focal point for teams seeking to bolster their lineups.

Brock Boeser: An Intriguing Possibility
One potential option is Brock Boeser of the Vancouver Canucks. The Islanders could find promise in his potential move, especially considering the history between the two teams. The previous trade involving Bo Horvat and others set a precedent for collaboration.
At 26 years old, Boeser could bring playmaking prowess to the Islanders as a right-wing player. His performance of 18 goals and 55 points in 74 games last season underscores his capabilities, especially considering his intermittent role on the first powerplay unit.
Boeser's strong skating abilities make him a valuable asset on Brock Nelson's wing or a potential reunion with Horvat. With two years remaining on his contract, Boeser could provide a multi-season boost to New York's lineup.
Jake DeBrusk: A Surprising Option
Jake DeBrusk, who expressed trade interest from Boston last year, delivered an impressive season as part of the Bruins. Notably, he achieved a career-high of 50 points in 64 games.
Considering Boston's roster changes due to retirements, the need for a center position upgrade becomes evident. A potential trade could involve Jean-Gabriel Pageau stepping in as a dependable two-way center in exchange for DeBrusk.
DeBrusk's versatility to play on either wing is complemented by his consistent goal-scoring ability, with 27 and 25 goals over the past two years. His effective performance combined with his $4 million contract makes him a valuable asset at 26 years old.
As the Islanders aim to maintain their position in the competitive Metropolitan Division, enhancing their scoring capacity is crucial. A trade for either Boeser or DeBrusk could potentially provide the offensive boost needed for the team to make a strong comeback in the 2024 season.
