The Islanders needed to be cap compliant, so they needed to add salary. I suppose the good thing about Thomas' contract is that it will keep them afloat to move players at the trade deadline without having to look to add even more salary if they were to make a trade. I don't know how full up their roster is, but it also keeps them from adding another player to the locker room if they have no one they want to send down. Just have to see how it plays out.
