I think this is a bit optimistic—though I am with you....

Dont forget that Schremp needs a new deal, and they need to decide if Bergenheim will be extended or released.

Everyone that thinks the Islanders wont be involved in free agency this year is kidding themselves. They will be at the very least $7-$8 million UNDER the FLOOR. They will be signing a goalie, and a defenseman, and my guess—one winger.

Goalie: Max $2 mil
Defenseman: Max $4 mil
Winger: Max $5 mil

I DONT see them making a play for Kovulchuk. They will pick up good value for their money. Garth Snow has hit two grand slams in picking up Streit and Moulsen and Roloson in the last two off seasons. There is no reason to believe that he won't effectively get to the cap floor with some good value moves that may not make lots of noise, but will make the team much better and stronger.

They will go after players with some size and sandpaper, allowing the younger players to develop with some protection.
