Well-traveled 37-year-old center Doug Weight just signed a one-year contract with the Islanders. The deal is worth $1.75 million plus performance bonuses that could push the value to $4.3 million. Weight spent last season in Anaheim, where he had 10 goals and 15 assists for 25 point sin 67 games. Islanders general manager Garth Snow added an older pivot in the hopes that he not only will be a solid playmaker for the team’s young wingers but also serve as a mentor.
Will put thoughts to this later. Still waiting for a few more moves by the Islanders.
