Moulson-Tavares-Kessel

Phanuef - Streit


So the cash strapped Isles add rough $12m in salary, for 2 players who will be ufas in 2014?
No interest, not even tempted, in taking such Milburylike short term moves.

Like the Leafs, the isles are building with homegrown talent.
Unlike the leafs, the isles won't be spending anywhere close to the cap ceiling.
