Haven't seen any salary figures outside of the fact that the first year is two way and the second year is one way.

Any Islanders fans care to explain why the guy didn't get that much burn for them?

we cant...mot fans wanted and thought Haley would of been the 4th line center for us but for some reason managment went in a diferent direction....

one of the most toughest sobs around

Also bloodied up Avery in that fight in that blowout at the end of the 10-11 season.

Wow looking into this guy he really seems to be a diamond in the rough. I was under the impression that he was just another goon. I'm quite intrigued to see what he can do here.

People have to remember what the general consensus was on Prust when he came to the Rangers. If the Rangers signed this guy, he likely has some redeeming quality.

Yep, Prust had 8 points dating back to 06-07 in the NHL before the Rangers acquired him. The Rangers made him the player he is today. I don't wanna get ahead of myself with Haley but based on what I've read from Islander fans and the few times I've seen him play, I don't see why he can't be something similar to Prust. Only issue is it looks like there may not be any room on the NHL roster for him unless injuries strike.

That's what I've been saying.

When I found out they signed him, I was pretty happy about that.

Seeing comments like "AHL signing" or anything to that extent just shows me how little some of my fellow Ranger fans have actually watched this kid play or just the pure venom towards this kid because he was an Islander.

I'm far more excited about him than Asham.

Not for nothing, that's a pretty good goal.

I expect him to start the year in Hartford, but if he does real well there i'd have no problem with him replacing Rupper or Asham.

Rupp hasn't been what we signed him for since a few games after the winter classic and where he mugged that guy on Florida. Haley is younger and faster. At no point did I or nearly any of us say Rupp is bad. Maybe you should read this nonsense before blowing up....

I'm pleased with this signing. I'd imagine the plan is to have Haley earn the 4th line center spot over Newbury,which I don't think he should have that hard of a time doing as long as he can win some faceoffs. Asham-Haley-Rupp may be one of the oddest looking trios of forwards in the league if that's the line.

Haley, who has played in 43 games over the course of his NHL career with the Islanders (two goals, one assist, 151 PIM, 15 fights), signed a two-year deal believed worth $600,000 per, with this season including a minor-league clause.

The more I think of this signing, the more I like it. He's only 26, tough, and not for nothing, but he has put up some decent numbers in the AHL. Looks like he can skate and protect the puck fairly well.

Looking forward to see what this guy can do. Hopefully he beats up a fishie or two.

I'm guessing it's the same thing as a 2 way deal.

I like this signing a lot. This is Sather's way of looking for the next Prust. Hard-nosed, young, hungry. Let Torts get a hold of him and he will be fine. I would MUCH rather have Haley over Mitchell @ 1.1 that is for damn sure.
