If Charles Wang issued a press release here.
Islanders website: Announced today that Blake Comeau has agreed to terms on a one-year deal.
Our fans could use some positive news, and a hockey signing of a player avoiding arbitration is just that.
Twenty four goal players are not easy to find on the open market, and this organizations left wing prospect depth took a hit this summer with the loss of Jason Gregiore, along with the Bridgeport losses.
Color make shocked the Devils took Trent Hunter in a trade, then bought him out given he passed his physical. The entire NHL passing on Hunter in waivers says a lot about how far his stock has fallen because of his injuries. I keep seeing Mark Parrish when his full-time NHL days were winding down.
These notions the Islanders are operating at a floor contradict the past before a salary floor when they were spending forty million, and last season when somehow this franchise supposedly scraping the floor traded 4.5m in salary last December?
The club easily could have kept Hunter and his cap hit instead of trading it if there was this scramble to reach a floor, especially if another injury would have insurance cover his salary.
This blog was no fan of Rolston last December, even at half that price on re-entry waivers, however he had an outstanding second half, plays all three positions, and is reportedly good for a lockeroom.
So far this summer Garth Snow replaced two players with three goals/eleven points with twenty seven goals/sixty six points.
All the one goal games, that cannot hurt.
Evgeny Nabokov, says last year, he was going through a rough time physically and mentally? Ok, fair enough.
Come to camp, quietly work hard and be the player he was two years ago.
