Potential Isles camp invites?

According to Katie Strang, the following four guys could be potential camp invites for the Islanders as training camp opens in a little under two weeks.

1) Chris Clark - Former Capitals captain, ex teammate of Jurcina, would be a solid player for Bridgeport & would be solid depth

2) Bryan McCabe - Is he ideal? Nope, however the team is better with him then without him in my opinion so a camp invite would be far from the worst thing in the world.

3) Sergei Samsonov - For a camp invite he wouldn't be bad, however he has more left in the tank then Clark does and would get top 9 minutes. So unless a trade is in the works which I don't believe it is, I don't see how Samsonov fits on the team.

4) Jay Pandolfo - Devil lifer, in a similar boat to Clark, again be a solid player for Bridgeport & would make good depth.

Katie Strang confirmed the Isles had talked to Pandolfo & Samsonov, however she doesn't think Samsonov would take an invite & would want a contract because hes coming off a 40 point season. She has yet to confirm contact on the the other two however.
