Given that De Haan is out and Ness has been underwhelming, I would really like to see the Isles invite a UFA dman to camp...as far as I can tell there are a few guys Brett Clark, Randy Jones, Kurtis Foster. Heck, even former Isles Chris Campoli and Mark Eaton are better than our current #7.

I would not mind Jones or foster as 7th dman

What about Paul Ranger? He is looking to make a comeback and if I recall he was very good on the Lightning. Hasn't played in 3 years but signed an AHL deal with the Marlies. Given that he inexplicably took a leave of absence from the Lightning and never returned, and no one knows why, a smaller time team could be a good fit for him to sign with or at the very least try out with.

You need to include links to info like that.

Adding some more under the radar/washed up players because, let's be honest, we're only getting players to sign or try out here if they're under the radar or washed up: Cam Barker, Paul Mara.

This is a long shot, but what about Jeff Finger? Yes, he was dramatically overpaid, but he might be worth adding if it means keeping Griff out of the NHL.

I'd like to see isles invite arnott to camp. He may still have a bit left and we wouldn't have to rush strome, although I wouldn't hate it if strome made team I would just rather him start next year but either way I'm fine with it since he has been ripping it up in juniors.

Not if Daly and Snow can stop him.

Daly is awaiting word from his KHL counterpart on the case, and Snow and Sheehy are due to talk again Tuesday.

He can barely skate now. He makes Trent Hunter look like Guy Lafleur.

Will we see Snow reach out to ex-Islander Chris Campoli, invite him to camp to see what kind of shape he's in?

He and the team didn't split on the best of terms.

Campoli was po'd that the Streit was getting the icetime/pp time that Campoli had been eating up. Campoli saw himself as a better player then the NYI did. Scott Gordon accused him of being a whiner and bad apple, after Campoli requested a trade.

To give CC credit, he kept his trade demand quiet, which helped the NYI with his trade value. Isles got 26th overall+ McAmmond for Campoli+ Comrie.

Ranger will probably make the Leafs, especially with Gardiner out with neck/concussion issues. They also have Franson as an RFA, the Isles might get lucky with a waiver pickup. Mike Kostka has been great with the Marlies, along with Ranger.

I think the Isles are down to Eaton, Campoli, Brett Clark, Kurtis Foster, Randy Jones or Jeff Finger...not a happy place when looking for help on defense. Maybe a Keith Ballard or Mike Komisarek buyout?

Foster is the best available by far then followed by jones, eaton,campoli, lukowich... Foster the only one worth anything IMO. Some one asked about jaroslav spachek, he retired back in November

In that case forget the tryout and offer him money now. He's signed to an AHL contract, although with less than 2 weeks to the season I guess it's very wishful thinking.
In any case the Islanders definitely need bodies on defense. At this point I think they we only what, 7 or 8 defensemen under NHL contracts, maybe 4 of whom have any type of significant NHL experience. We need depth and someone who can play D. Any of those you listed would be fine, at least they can somewhat play at this level.

Also I see no one mentioning Barker. Has he regressed that much or can he still play in the NHL? Seems like the typical guy that the Islanders would give a second chance to.

Bartulis can also be an option. Obviously none of these players are ideal, but they're ones I can see the Isles throwing a bone to.
