Even Lundy is scheduled to be a UFA, although there's a 99% chance he doesn't make it to that point).
IMO, the time to find out what we have is next season with Poulin/Nilsson. Granted, all of these guys could be re-signed before they become UFAs, but if not we may never get another opportunity like this to address the goalie position.
in my opinion Nilsson has franchise goalie talent and he is the future of the islanders between the pipes. i'll say it again..poulin is nice and i would think he would be a nice backup..but its honestly not close between the two of them
