Mark Streit Will Not Return

According to Newsday, Islanders captain Mark Streit will not return to the team next season.

Streit who is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 5th has turned down the Islanders best contract offer believed to be 3 years at 4.75 million per season.  If you remember back around the trade deadline TSN reported that Streit was looking for anywhere between 5.5-6 million per season on a three year contract.

It is being speculated that John Tavares will likely be named the team captain replacing Streit with Visnovsky, Hamonic, or Frans Nielsen taking the vacant assistant captain role.
