Reports are coming out that Brock Nelson has officially signed with the New York Islanders for 6 years at 6 million a year.
My Take: I’m not in love with the term, but the money is decent and we still don’t know if there are no-trade clauses involved. I’ll be blunt, if the Isles can improve on the wingers and their goal total, I need to see 60 points from Nelson for the next 2-3 years. He can play 1C-3C and left wing, so there is some diversity in his game. As long as he can stay healthy to get through this contract so it does not turn into an Andrew Ladd deal towards the end of the term, I’m glad to see players follow Bailey’s lead and finally stay.
