Unfortunately from an Islanders standpoint salary and length of contract are valued over talent. Even the home town discount contracts that Okposo, Gabner and JT signed are back loaded to better benefit the owner. If the Isles do not get a new arena he may sell the team.
You'll notice that the knowledgeable followers aren't arguing that Moulson is a better player just that he's more affordable, although in fairness he does produce goals. The Islander fans are aware that we don't have the monetary resources to compete with the Bruins, Rangers or Flyers, etc.
