Islanders General Manager Working Hard To Sign Biggest Name Available

We have been hearing for more then a week that the New York Islanders are trying to sign unrestricted free agent Nazem Kadri.

Islanders General Manager Lou Lamoriello wants to make a big splash and boost his offence for next season.

But apparently Lamoriello wants to clear some cap space , this comes from Sportsnet's Hockey Insider Frank Seravali. The Islanders want to move some salary before making a big offer to Kadri.


Seravalli believes that Lamoriello is working to trade Anthony Beauvillier. Seravalli believes that Beauvillier would draw a lot of interest around the league. Josh Bailey's name has come up also in trade talks.

Pagnotta shared the following:

"There are a few different dominos that are eventually going to fall here once this does come into play and is officially finalized. The Islanders have some house cleaning they need to do with some of their restricted free agents, my understanding is that's moving forward as well - It's just a matter now with $11 million in cap space, clearing some additional space to make all the pieces fit. The one player that is continuously part of (trade) speculation is Josh Bailey. He's got two years left on his contract, $5 million cap hit, my understanding is that he is a player that is still out there that is somebody they're trying to move."
