New York Islanders: Can Joe Colborne Be A Fit?

Islanders Insight's picture

The Calgary Flames did not offer the soon to be free agent, Joe Colborne a qualifying offer. After coming off a career season could he be a fit with the Islanders? Joe Colborne interested me because he is not a name that was being associated with the Islanders. There’s been a lot of talks about […]

New York Islanders Could Find Quality Depth in Stempniak

Islanders Insight's picture

With the New York Islanders electing to keep their draft picks, Garth Snow will have to look elsewhere to create a splash this off-season or run the risk of seeing the team regress. Management’s eyes need to be set on a top line winger, but talented forward depth is another area that could help the […]

Since the NHL Draft took place last Friday in Buffalo, fans and writers have been busy wondering what the next move is for their club. The Islanders, led by General Manager Garth Snow, surprised many last week when they didn’t use their first round pick as part of a trade for a top-six forward.

Islanders Qualify Six Players

View From Section 317's picture

From Art Staple at Newsday

My Take: Not really surprised the Isles got this done early, although I was wondering if Gibson was going to be given an offer. So now that the younger players have at least been qualified, the Islanders can now turn their attention to free agency. With a few teams making some surprise moves not to qualify a few players, the Islanders shopping menu may have gotten a little bigger.

New York Islanders Could Still Trade Travis Hamonic

New York Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic rescinded his trade request a few months ago. Putting an end to the “Where will he go” saga. But even with Hamonic staying, he still remains a valuable trade target. When New York Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic rescinded his trade request it seemed like the chapter was closed on […]

The alarm is starting to sound on the Frans Nielsen contract watch. Larry Brooks reported yesterday that the Islanders offered Nielsen a contract at $5.5 million per, but Nielsen anticipates getting $6 million per on a contract that runs through his age 36 season. Although close, the two sides are not yet together on a deal and the chances of Nielsen applying for free agency on July 1st are looking very likely.

New York Islanders and the Case for Milan Lucic

Islanders Insight's picture

With this year’s free agent frenzy approaching, Steven Stamkos’ name has been bandied about as a (long-shot) option for the New York Islanders. Considering the money it would take to lure Stamkos to Brooklyn, Milan Lucic might just be a more feasible option. Everyone wants Steven Stamkos. I’m just going to preface this entire thing […]

Last night, the New York Islanders used their first-round draft pick (19th overall) on American forward Kieffer Bellows. The 6’1″ left-handed shot has an excellent bloodline as his father is former North Stars star Brian.

Kieffer Bellows, a pure goal scoring forward who is committed to play at Boston University next season, was selected by the New York Islanders with the 19th pick in the NHL draft this evening. Although Bellows will not have an impact on the Islanders roster next season, he does add depth at an uncertain forward position that includes pending free agents Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Matt Martin.
