According to Arthur Staple, in a recent interview for eyeonisles.com he left the door open for another acquisition by the Islanders that would impact the NHL team. In prior years, Staple has said they were done and not to expect anything more.
He specifically mentions goalie as a spot where they would be able to, "bring in another skilled veteran to compete for a job in camp." This has caused some fans to start talking about Tim Thomas again because in that piece a few weeks ago for the Boston Globe it is speculated that a team would only need to give Thomas a training camp invite and not a guaranteed contract.

I personally don't see an acquisition coming as I think they want to see what Poulin has in a more expanded role. Although, if they were to do something a veteran goalie would be on the top of the list of things to do in my opinion.
