Not sure about it. Hes a UFA if i'm not mistaken obviously. Question is, would he be willing to sign with the Islanders? Is he looking to be a part of the rebuild, or is he going to try to sign with a contender if possible?

Not sure how much money he would command either, if Snow wanted him bad enough, I'm sure he could overpay...

I can't see Gagne wanting to sign with a rebuilding isles team.

Also,doesn't he strictly play lw?With lws Moulson and Grabner,I doubt the isles would be in the mix for a top 6 lw.Isles gotta pay Grabner and Comeau their well earned raises this summer.

We have Grabner, we don't really have a need for Gagne. Our forwards are pretty much set next year.

We need a top-4 defenseman and a goaltender.

Hopefully not. Wrong assets management move if they sign Gagne.

I think he's going to the Western Conference, just to get a complete change of scenery.

I can see him signing with St. Louis, Phoenix, or Calgary.

I highly doubt that STL have any interrest in him, look at their current top 6 (Perron not included) and tell me where does he fit in there

It was reported one of the reasons he would only waive his NTC to come to Tampa as they had cap space to re-sign him and he didn't want it to be a just a 1 year deal. A lot depends on how he does in the playoffs (usually very well) and what kind of contract he is looking for. He is currently bouncing between 2nd and 3rd lines so no way is Tampa giving him $5m/year.

Gagne of four or five years ago, sure. This version of Gagne is shot because of all the injuries, no thanks. The Islanders need to sign good players not good names.

Zero interest in Khabibilun's contract.

Grabner,Bailey,Comeau and Okposo all get new contracts this summer.

Despite what many nyi fans want,DiPietro's gonna be in goal next season.Probably splitting time with Montoya.

I agree we have enough injury prone players. I hope Gagne can comeback and be a real good player again though, he always seemed like a good guy, he just has to stay healthy.
