Although Bellows will not have an impact on the Islanders roster next season, he does add depth at an uncertain forward position that includes pending free agents Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Matt Martin.

Blog: What Would You Do If You Were Isles GM?

View From Section 317's picture

I’ve, talked about the graduates, the professionals and the drafted prospects of the New York Islanders all week long and I’ve given my five players who could be taken at number 19 should the Islanders draft at that spot. Now this is my once-a-year treat where I play arm-chair GM and I try to improve the team while still trying to stick to what Garth Snow could do, meaning keeping things on a budget and not spending all the money and “Going all out” in the end of June. I do believe that will be his goal, improving the team while still on a budget, which is why I have never written anything on Steven Stamkos coming to the Islanders. It’s just nice to think about, but there are other teams more desperate for him and the Isles should take advantage. So let’s set the scene: You’re watching the draft or you’re in Buffalo, you tell the Toronto fan next to you to stay quiet for one second because they’re still cheering about tanking this season to get their savior, Auston Matthews.
