Islanders Transaction: JF Berube has agreed to terms on a one-year contract. #isles

My take: If we’re not sending Pelech down to the minors, the remaining cap space is roughly $4,896,024 with Strome, Mayfield, Quine and Gibson left to sign. If the Isles elect to send him down, then we’re looking a little over 5.7 million in space. There are also three goalies on this team with one-way contracts. This may further speculation that Jaroslav Halak may indeed be traded before the season begins or shortly after. For now, this also makes Mikhail Grabovski going on the LTIR more plausible. Time will tell.
