just a guess, obviously. this is not what i want, so easy on the 'let's let our young guys develop' opinion...

Moulson-Tavares-KO
Bailey-Nielsen-Nino
Ullstrom-Nelson-Grabner
Martin-Cizikas-JJ

Leopold-Hamonic
Amac-Lydman

Agree on Vis, disagree on Streit and Nabby. Nabokov has already proven that he'll sign here if the price is right. If the Isles want him back for 2013-14, IMO he'll be back.

On Streit, I just don't see him going anywhere. Especially if the Islanders are content with adding $6M or so of salary in Leopold and Lydman. I think they'd give that money to Streit if they had to, and either look elsewhere for a cheaper UFA, the trade market, or add another rookie(Reinhart? deHaan? Mayfield? etc.) to the lineup. I just don't see this team letting Streit walk without a fight, and Steit doesn't strike me as the type of guy who badly wants out of LI and will refuse to sign regardless of what they offer.
