The wiring is completely substandard for our power needs and the neighborhood is like a demilitarized zone. Islanders links Before retreating to whatever rustic lake town all the hockey insiders shuffle off to every summer, HNIC's Elliotte Friedman dropped his final Thoughts column of the season and the Islanders were prominently featured.

New York Islanders Sign Nikolai Kulemin, Mikhail Grabovski to 4-Year Free Agent Contracts

Well, those are moves. The New York Islanders have signed forwards Nikolai Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski to four-year contracts, reports Arthur Staple of Newsday. Brett Cyrgalis of the Post reports Grabovski's is for $20 million total, while Kulemin's is $16.75 million over the same span.
