[Proposal] Making the Islanders Good Again

Recommended Posts

So, I was actually very surprised to see that Halak ended up signing in NY and them also keeping their pick. This obviously means they want to compete for a playoff spot. Right now, here's how I see their team. Keep in mind, I didn't watch too many Isle games this year so I went based purely off of metrics...

? Tavares Okposo

? Nielsen ?

Bailey Nelsen ?

Clutterbuck Cizikas Martin

Hamonic ?

Reinhart De Haan

Visnovsky Hickey




To WPG: 4th OVR pick and 2015 2nd rounder

To NYI: Kane and 2014 3rd rounder

To Van: 2nd rounder 2014 (I'm not sure they have this tho) and Strome

To NYI: Higgins and Tanev

(OR, u can swap Strome and the 4th in the deals)

To anyone: Grabner

To NYI: 2nd/3rd rounder

To anyone: Carkner

To NYI: 7th

Sign: Gaborik 4 years @ $8m

Cammileri 4 years @ $7m

Lots of money thrown at both of them and due to these recent events, they may be inclined to sign w/ a playoff contender in an easier conference. Still, not an easy task to sign them, esp Gaborik since he may have won a cup...

CapGeek Armchair GM Roster
Marian Gaborik ($8.000m) / John Tavares ($5.500m) / Kyle Okposo ($2.800m)
Evander Kane ($5.250m) / Frans Nielsen ($2.750m) / Mike Cammalleri ($7.000m)
Josh Bailey ($3.300m) / Brock Nelson ($0.900m) / Chris Higgins ($2.500m)
Matt Martin ($1.000m) / Casey Cizikas ($1.851m) / Cal Clutterbuck ($2.750m)

Chris Tanev ($4.000m) / Travis Hamonic ($3.857m)
Calvin de Haan ($3.051m) / Griffin Reinhart ($0.863m)
Lubomir Visnovsky ($4.750m) / Thomas Hickey ($0.675m)
Jaroslav Halak ($4.500m)
Ray Emery ($2.650m)
Alexei Yashin ($2.204m)
Rick DiPietro ($0.000m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(estimations for 2014-15)
SALARY CAP: $71,100,000; CAP PAYROLL: $70,150,476; BONUSES: $4,275,000
CAP SPACE (20-man roster): $949,524

Now there's a legit playoff team and boy is that top 6 nice. The hardest part of this whole shakeup would be to convince Cammy and Gaborik to sign there.

A bit unrealistic, but not that far off IMO.

Thoughts? I have a feeling that I'm going to get ripped apart for this. Well, do your worst.
