According to Katie Strang, the Islanders have extended qualifying offers to the following restricted free agents:
- Blake Comeau
- Josh Bailey
- Dylan Reese
- Michael Haley
- Jesse Joensuu
- Ty Wishart
Notice absent from that list is Jack Hillen. They have til tomorrow to offer Hillen, and if they don't then he will likely be starting his career over with a new team.
NOTE: In case you missed it yesterday the Islanders dealt defenseman Bruno Gervais to the Tampa Bay Lightning for future considerations. Although Gervais was probably one of the nicest guys on the team, I am happy he is gone because he well, really wasn't a good hockey player. Now he gets to join the Islanders southern team. With the acquisition of Gervais the Lightning now have 4 former Islanders plus one former Islanders assistant coach.
