I'm sure NVMC was a reason players didn't sign here. But the team sucking for the better part of 20 years is the real reason no one signs there.

The Islanders have a great prospect pool. They have to make a trade for a big player to pair with JT. you do that and you turn an already really good 1st line into a great 1st line. Then a UFA 2nd line center won't scoff at the idea of signing there.

Before FAs are attracted to the team, the Isles will need to show them something & that means they're going to have to trade for someone. Relying on prospects only will never work.
