I still think #Isles getting Nabby at fair price so they can trade him for a 3rd next February is the biggest sports story today.
His negativity is really starting to bug me.

And hopefully our goalies will stay healthy but as they are Islander goalies and I think Kelly Hrudey bought an Islander goalie voodoo doll the day he was traded and still sticks pins in it occasionally, I doubt it.
Thats exactly what we need

You make a good point. Maybe Isles fans should hope there is no amnesty? Other teams that do want to spend close to the cap, could be in cap trouble if there is no amnesty.

The isles took advantage of the Duck tight budget a few seasons ago,getting Wiz for a 3rd.

Both sides come off looking bad.

The isles look thin skinned,unable to take Botta's criticism and at times, Botta's bitterness slips through.

yeah, I mean don't get me wrong what the Isles did was terrible, but as a professional you act like such and move past it...and also with this team there are PLENTY of times that negativity is well deserved, but this signing is clearly not one of those situations.

I used to go to IPB every single day. I loved Botta, and I still feel as though SnoWang screwed him (and themselves in a way). But you're right, his bitter schtick has worn thin.

You forgot to add

.....once DP gets injured
What do ya think... Are DP's odds of getting hurt next year 99.9% or 100%? It's hard to tell.

I think DP's already made an appointment for a fresh groin pull in early October so not to worry...

If nothing else this means some stability in net; and that Poulin and Nilsson will have the proper amount of time to develop.

The only real thing that would be surprising to me is does he get injured in october or november. Otherwise it's 100% he gets injured.

Resigning Montoya would give us four possible starting goalies next season (DiPietro, Nabokov, Montoya, Poulin). With DiPietro being the most injury prone human to ever play a National Sport, you can count him out. So I think we will role with a three goalie rotation next year (Nabokov, Montoya, Poulin all in the NHL) and let our other goalie prospects mature in the A.

Last week. They had Button & the other two talking about it briefly. Certainly nothing set in stone, but they said the mood was no for another buyout this time.

Not that Wang would do that to Rickety anyway...

Many of us share your dream. I'd buy the Islanders if I could. So you guys would bash the living hell out of me instead of Wang.

Good news. Despite the hokey circumstances at the start, Nabby's been nothing but professional since coming here to play. I liked his post-game comments yesterday about "playing for pride".

Ok this is a decent development. Until the deadline, I would have thought Nabokov signing would have been pretty much nil, but things are always in flux, as they say. Who's they, you say? Them. Over there...

Next up, address the defense. I don't know how, but there needs to be serious upgrades.

Of course, when you've been shut out as many times as this team this season, offense is also a priority. Lots of holes to fill here.

But goaltending would seem to be the team strength right now, in terms of depth.

I was obviously extremely happy when I heard about this.

My first reaction was that this has to be a very positive sign in PAP's mind about staying on the island.

Maybe the Isles make some moves to really make a push at it next year? Not holding my breath though.

I would pay that price. When we both win our separate $300M, we can go in for half each.
