Brent Sopel Traded To Long Island

Breaking News: Brent Sopel has been traded to the New York Islanders in exchange for a conditional draft pick, a 2nd rounder in 2006 if he signs and extention with New York, or a 3rd rounder if he does not.

Since this is for a draft pick and not a player it is likely Nonis has a defenseman in his sights, however Sopel's ~1.5m will not be enough to help land Niedermayer.

More to come...
