The New York Islanders Snag Two From The UFA Pool

from Arthur Staple of Newsday,

The Islanders waited until Day 2 of free agency to make their splash. It was a double cannonball.

After missing out on some top targets on Tuesday, GM Garth Snow landed two quality forwards at once Wednesday afternoon, signing former Leafs wing Nikolai Kulemin to a four-year, $16.75-million deal and center Mikhail Grabovski, late of the Capitals, to a four-year, $20-million deal.

"To me, free agency is like fishing," Snow said. "You put your line in the water and you hope you get some nibbles. We got two big bites today."
