NY press: nyi will qualify all but Cairns

TSN questions whether Hamrlik will be qualified.

But Evan Grossman the isles NY Post beatwriterand Larry Brooks the Rangers beatwriter, have reported in the last 4-5 days that Milbury's said the Isles will qualify all their rfas except Cairns.

Other tough calls around the league on Group 2 free agents: Winger Jeff O'Neill needs a $3.7-million qualifying offer in Carolina, defenceman Roman Hamrlik a $3.6-million qualifier on Long Island, winger Eric Daze $3.2 million in Chicago, winger Adam Deadmarsh (who missed all of last season with post-concussion syndrome) $3 million in Los Angeles, winger Jeff Friesen $3 million in New Jersey, and winger Anson Carter $2.8 million in Los Angeles.

Grossman NY Post:
The Islanders, who pick at No. 16 on Saturday, have only four players under contract going into next season, and will qualify all but Eric Cairns as Group V free agents by June 30. Because of the looming uncertainty surrounding the CBA, more players will likely be going to arbitration hearings in August after their teams extend offers or proportionally scaled raises next week.
