I could see the isles kicking some tires on Olli @ 3.5-4.0 X 3 years .

certainly not 5x5 .

heh , I remember when olli was an islander and Daigle challenged him to a fight .

olli looked at him as if to say ''are you sure you wanna get your ass kicked''

then proceeded to kick his ass.

Olli Jokinen would fit well as the Islanders #2 center. Frans Nielsen is a better fit as a #3 center. (I doubt Islanders/snow sign Jokinen!)

Were not at $5 mil for 5 years. We'll definitely give him PA's money he walked away from for a 2-3 year term to be our second line center.

Only way NYI sign Jokinen is that no one else makes him a offer

I don't want him just for the fact that I couldn't take him seriously with all the pictures of him on this site. That and well he's not very good.

Shouldn't the thread title read "Isles going hard after Nathan McKinnon?"

No, it should be titled Tavares is the #1 center,Frans Nielsen is more suited to the #3 center spot,so who can the isles sign short term for the #2 center spot?

Kind of a long thread title

Most isle fans will be sadder, if 19 yr old Strome or 20 yr old Brock Nelson ,are rushed into that #2 center spot.

Does this mean they want Luongo back too? Trade for Kvasha and Mark Parrish? Eh, eh, eh?

I hate Eklund...this can't be more then speculation, but depending on the price...worse things have happened with free agency.

In a recent meeting with fans,Snow said something along the lines of loving Frans play,but that he'd like more offense from the 2nd line center spot.

Strome is only 19 and Nelson only 20.
Snow will have Parenteau's rejected money to try and sign a 2nd line center.

The hitch is that Jokinen,like Parenteau,probably wants the security of a long term deal while Snow pushes for a short term deal.

I think Casey is gonna be a fan favorite with his play,but I'd hope Snow is beating the bushes for an established,2nd line center.Not planning on putting a kid, with 15 nhl games in that spot.

Damn that is horrible lineup. I guess it's another top 5 pick... looking forward to next season. With Garth Snow as GM this team goes nowhere.

So do we even reach 50 points with that line up? Outside of The first line we have no top 6 forwards, along with a very weak bottoms six outside of nielsen, and
Maybe grabner.
