Goalie is not the Isles number one need and they can find a starter as a free agent. Bernier wont cost the Islanders Nino even if they wanted him. Right now re signing Nabokov is more important to the team than aquiring a goalie in a trade. Furthermore the NYI just called up Poulin. Montreal did not receive a top prospect (5th Overall) for Halak.
the islanders have so many needs. i would say that goaltending could, in fact, be their biggest. if they can't re-sign nabokov, i think they could be in serious trouble for next year because i have absolutely no faith in the organization to bring in a goalie via the ufa market. you do raise an interesting point about what halak brought back. that being said, i thought the day of that trade and still do today, that the habs were fleeced in that one.
