Yes because the isles cap floor tricks over the last 4-5 seasons, along with reports from credible reporters haven't given fans an idea of the isles budget.

Snow just stumbles into trades involving players with cap hits, higher then the player's actual salary. The backloaded contracts given to Tavares/Moulson/Okposo/Nielsen/Grabner are all coincidences(sp).

$7m 1st line: Moulson-Tavares-
$6.2m 2nd line: Grabner-Nielsen-Okposo
Get this: Thomas, Visnovsky, John Tavares, Matt Moulson, Martin Grabner, Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielsen combine for a full-season cap hit of $27.783 million. Yet because of contract structures and suspension, the Islanders actually are paying these seven players a sum of $16 million.
