    It’s already happening - Floral Park is suing.

    Don't know how reliable this guy is but please be true. Marner is just as good or better than Panarin IMHO.

    I'm not so sure about any of this. Right now the team doesn't have close to enough cap space to make this offer. There's a reasonable possibility the Leafs would match it - they're under a lot of pressure to finally have some real success up there - and if they didn't it would cost the Islanders four first-round draft picks. Is he worth that? I have my doubts about that anyway, but it seems more likely that this is just something leaked by his agents to try to get Toronto to up their offer.

    Lou can make the cap work this year pretty easily, but can he make it work next year, too, when Barzal is due to get paid?

    The money and picks don’t bother me; he’s worth it and it would force us to dump a few guys and bring up a few of the younger, and more importantly, cheaper players to fill out the roster. But if those kids pan out, and we can also get Barzal resigned, we would have a very dangerous core of a team for years to come. That’s before we even talk about my favorite subject, Sorokin.

    The final approval comes today at 4:00. Went over to islandermania.com and in the Belmont thread which is in the business section of islander mania someone posted pictures of construction crews setting up shop already. This is happening folks. They are supposed to have a ground breaking ceremony in September probably so Cuomo can take his victory lap and get his share of the credit but it looks like shovels will meet dirt this week. I wish I could post pictures but its on the last page of the Belmont thread page 176 at islandermania.com. Construction crews are at Belmont and ready to go.

    I like the Brassard signing, and although it hasn’t been a newsworthy off season I like the team heading into the season.

    There’s a trade deadline every season to improve the team that year. The best case scenario for the Isles would be to get enough productivity out of one or two of the prospects that they feel comfortable enough trading a few others at the deadline.
