We conclude by looking in between the pipes at goalie:

1) Jaroslav Halak
While he is a little shaken up to start the season, I think Halak will be just fine and prove to be a steady backstop for the Islanders like he was last season.
2) Thomas Greiss
After having the backups struggle for a majority of last season, I think the Islanders found the right fit with Greiss. He will prove to be the perfect backup for the Islanders and will be able to handle a little extended time should Halak show he isn't 100%.
3) JF Berube
After being one of the better goalies in the AHL in the last few years I think Berube will show the Islanders he was worthy of their waiver claim in a cup of coffee with the team throughout the season.
