Aren't they way under the salary floor by now? Love how the NHL lets THIS go without a peep but cut our hands off for a by the letter of the law contract.

Wasn't Wishart a part of the Boyle trade?

If so, that's not a terrible return for a goalie who is over 40 and a rental.


Intrigues me what we might be able to get for Langs/Arnott.

They get under the cap floor with that trade but they have bonuses counting on the cap that makes it work i think

You don't put him on the injured reserve, keep his money against the cap hit and it will work out well for them.

The Islanders should be fine with staying to the cap, Yashin's penalty is 4.755 in addition to bonuses and they make it.

This.

Or, according to Hockeybuzz, they're at 47.53. Either way, they're good. Who would've thought Yashin's buyout would help them financially. Dead weight under your salary cap is a pain in the ass for richer teams.

BTW, isn't it ironic how the current salary floor is higher than the original salary cap (39 milion cap in 2005/2006... seems ridiculous just 6 years from then).

Their base salary is $40.6...$5 million of that $45.6 is bonuses, which they may or may not hit, in most cases probably not. Okposo's got $850k in bonuses and I don't think he's hitting them :lol:

I think they could've gotten more for Roloson. I've recently saw Wishart play here in Norfolk (against our beloved Albany Devils) and he's decent, but barely a top 4 guy in the A. Nothing special at all imo.

You beat me to it. Haha

Edit: Why don't the Islanders just try to cut their losses with this guy? Way too injury prone to be counted on as a number one goalie. Is there any way the Islanders can dump his outrageous contract?

Uhm, no.

Well, they could buy him out but they'd be having a cap hit of 1.5 million until 2031. :rofl: :blink:
