If we end up losing him for nothing in free agency it would have been a huge mistake. I just can't see him taking a deal that is worth less than 15 million, and I am not sure Snow/Wang are willing to pay him that money.
First of all there is absolutely no way Ottawa offered that for a UFA that has one and a half good seasons and zero playoff experience that is 28 years old. If that was offered and the Islanders didnt take that then Snow should be instantly fired. I havent seen an unproven UFA get traded for that value in years. If I am an Islanders fan I am absolutely furious that Nabokov and Paranteau weren't traded for something... Thats bad asset management, what if you lose them for nothing? Id be praying they both have extensions coming in the near future.
