The New York Islanders are willing to pay the piper.
The Brooklyn club is willing to send a first-round pick to the Vegas Golden Knights to keep the incoming squad from selecting one of its forwards in the expansion draft, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.
That means the likes of forwards Josh Bailey, Brock Nelson, and Ryan Strome are up for grabs to the Golden Knights. But as Dreger reports, the Islanders are willing to pay a price for Vegas to direct its attention elsewhere.
Fans of the Islanders will know the outcome soon enough, with the Golden Knights set to announce their selections June 21.
