A look around the web at the most recent New York Islanders news. Make Eyes On Isles your go to website for all things Islanders.

The New York Islanders are now a team that is spending towards the cap ceiling. When that’s the case it’s hard for a team to get by with bad contracts because it’s such an importance to balance the right players under contracts to remain under the cap.

Alex Peck writes how it’s time to move away from Mikhail Grabovski. The often injured Grabovski isn’t worth keeping, he may have a good possession game but he is not scoring nearly enough for what he is being paid.

The Islanders have a couple options. They can place him on long term injured reserve, or if they find a team that is trying to hit the cap floor they can make a trade.

It’s tough to see a team taking a chance on Grabovski, if anything like I said it would have to be a team that isn’t too competitive that’s trying to hit the floor. The long term IR seems like the more doable option of the two.
