New York Islander Free Agent Targets

After more than a year of anticipation, the draft is over. Wonder of wonders, we got Nino AND Kirill AND a blue chip power forward in Brock Nelson who is descended from hockey royalty. Would have liked for us to get a few other guys we could have gotten: Troy Rutkowski, Nino's teammate, Teemu Pulkkinen, Ivan Telegin, and Yasin Cisse.

The Isles will be looking for a top six, a first tier defensive defenseman, a big tough snarly forward, and a backup goalie. Coyote fans will note that I have us taking two of their guys.
