Today, we will conclude our pre season predictions by discussing the goalies.

1) Jaroslav Halak
Halak will provide something for the Islanders that they haven't had in quite a while. A stable and reliable goalie between the pipes. This will be a welcomed change for both the Islanders and their fans this season.
2) Chad Johnson
For those days where Halak needs a rest, Johnson will be a more then adequate option. After his season last year, Johnson proved to be one of the better backup goalies in the entire NHL and the Islanders will be lucky to have him this season.
Guys Who Could See Time:

1) Kevin Poulin
In the event of an injury, Poulin will likely be the first call up from Bridgeport. This is a key year for Poulin, if he doesn't continue his development this could be his last season in the Islanders organization.
2) David Leggio
Leggio was signed on July 1st to provide goalie depth in Bridgeport with the loss of Anders Nilsson overseas and Ken Reiter leaving as a free agent. He will do that, and he will do it effectively as well if his career is any indication. He might even get a chance to start a game in the NHL at some point in the season.
