Tomas Tatar on the New York Islanders would surely be something interesting.

The three New York area teams are represented on this list with Tomas Tatar joining Zach Parise and Patrick Kane.

They are also the only three remaining free agents that had 20 goals or more last season. Tatar was magnificent as a member of the New Jersey Devils.

Having a good player like him in the bottom six (and sometimes top six) made a world of difference for the Devils. He showed he can play in all situations in all different roles.

A team like the New York Islanders might be the perfect fit for him if he can’t return to New Jersey.

Now, he’ll never see time with a center as good as Jack Hughes or Nico Hischier on the island but they still have good players that can feed him.

If the Islanders added a versatile forward like him, making it back to the playoffs becomes a tad bit more likely.
