In Topic: Sounds like the New York "Islanders" are no more...

I honestly haven't seen a lot of Boychuk over the years.  Am I missing something?  I mean, he's putting up better offense than he did in Boston, and I know he's a good defensive defender, but is he anywhere near 6 million dollars good?  Even if it were on a shorter term?

I watch A LOT of Isles games. He's pretty damn good.  Leading the Isles defensemen in points. Has great chemistry with Leddy.  Locking those two up for the next few (maybe 7 is too long) was totally worth it for the Isles.  Shows that they're serious about contending.

 

As far as their cap woes and such.... Guessing that Snow figures he will lose at least one of his forwards to free agency (Grabner, Okposo, Neilson, Martin) but they're also currently sitting at a reasonable cap hit and some may only need a slight raise to keep around on whats turning out to be a really solid team.

 

Also, Yashin's cap hit finally comes off the books.  So, there's another 2.2 million finally freed up.

He now makes exactly as much as John Tavares makes.  Nuts.

 

It's the term that kills me though.  6 million is too high, but he actually IS a good player.  But 7 years for a 31 year old stay at home defenseman is awfully high. 

 

 

Extended Leddy and Boychuk.  Sounds like Snow is really tired of losing his defensemen to Philly.

 

Maybe a bit expensive but when you've got the rest of your D locked up for another few years, or they are RFA (with the exception of Strait)

It isn't probably that much higher than what they (Leddy/Boychuk)  might get on the open market.

Also, you have to figure that Visnovsky is about done.  Maybe another year, but not at $6million.
