Islanders lost yesterday 4-2 to the Devils. Now players and fans will watch or read with bated breathe, and imagine what Garth Snow may or may not do the next 2 1/2 days. The Islanders don't play again until Tuesday after the deadline is over, which means all the fans have to look forward to is nervousness with the possible transactions.
The Islanders need a scoring winger for the first line. If that can happen, I wouldn't be surprised to see another winning streak and a jump into the playoffs.
If they can improve on defense, then they need to make sure he is not injury prone.
Finally, racking up a few more picks for this years and next years draft also wouldn't hurt them.
The players who are unrestricted at the end of the year need to make a decision on whether or not they want to be Islanders.
Time is runing short......stay tuned.
