BREAKING NEWS: Islanders Sign Grabovski & Kulemin To 4 Year Contracts

According to reports, the Islanders came out of the woodwork today to sign forwards Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin to 4 year contracts.  Both of the forwards played for new Islanders assistant coach Greg Cronin in Montreal and it is believed he pushed hard for both players.  Reports are also suggesting that the pair was came as a package deal as they became very good friends with each other in their time together in Toronto.

Grabovski was signed to a 4 year deal worth 20 million dollars.  Last year in 58 games for the Capitals Grabovski had 35 points including 13 goals.

Meanwhile, Kulemin was signed to a 4 year deal worth 16.75 million dollars.  Last season, in 70 games for the Leafs Kulemin had 20 points.

You can easily criticize them for these contracts specifically the Kulemin one.  However, I am just happy they are showing they have a pulse and a desire to continue to improve the team after the statements last night to the contrary.  With the roster the way it is now I wonder what moves will be made because the roster seems pretty full now.
