Words are wind.

Let's see him ink a deal then I'll believe what he says about liking Long Island.

On the hockey side: Extending him would be huge. Isles are getting close to breaking out, and Lubo helps the club big time.

I'd love to take Lubo and deal Streit personally, give the 'C' to Tavares and acquire a 1st or 2nd and prospect for Streit.

Something will have to happy the end of the week or he's gone. I think Streit really wants to return so he may not be dealt and just let him go to free agencie.

Lubo has said before that he likes it here. It would be great for the Isles to re-sign him.
2 yrs/$9m?

Nothing's changed, people just had the wrong idea from the start. The original fiasco was about the labour dispute, and not necessarily a desire to avoid the destination.

Isles are $20m below the 2013-2014 projected cap floor with a few rfas to sign. The new cba doesn't allow Snow to continue using ELC bonuses to reach the floor. Since the isles have to spend and the ufa market is looking weak, the isles are trying to keep Streit/Vis.

Done from Boston.

Please send him over immediately. Can he play tonight?

If the islanders are unable to sign Nabokov I could see them tryign to get Kipper at the draft for this reason.
Thomas will be coming off the books. Kipper only is owed $1.5mil next yr with a cap hit of $5.8M.

So the guy who was forced into play in Long Island hasn't had a change of heart?

My first thought also. Blues are looking for a top 4 LHD. And Strickland is a Blues rumor guy. Lubo isnt exactly rugged. But he would be an improvement on the left side for the Blues.

Snow already has a bunch of promising youngsters, several of them knocking on the nhl door: Strome, Nelson, Nino,Reinhart, De Haan,Donovan.

What he needs is to surround his youngsters with solid vets, who can take the pressure off them.

Personally I rather keep Streit and trade Viz but I would sign both these guys and trade Nabby.

Good for Lubo. Don't forget, the guy is only two years removed from having a Norris caliber season (2010-2011)

Kipper would be a bad move. We need a young guy like Bernier.
