    They could have waived Aho and kept Gustaffson for similar money, I think. I guess they did not want to for Lou reasons.

    Hickey was waived and will probably go down.

    After a strong camp with the Islanders, Erik Gustafsson has been released from his PTO and hearing he will sign with the Blackhawks. Had a 60-point season in Chicago in 2018-19.

    This thread is just about coming to a close for this year. Who is ready for some Islander hockey?

    Lou does Lou things. Stays within the rules but works with them in a clever way.

    If #Isles do file Schneider/Bellows contracts today or tomorrow, neither needs waivers if they stay with the big club. Thought that they would need waivers because contracts were filed after rosters were set, but not so. Schneider will be filed so he can travel tomorrow.

    Lou is really something.

    Lou ‘makes his own rules’ — again

    The rollout of the Isles’ 23-man roster on Monday looked a little off. No Michael Dal Colle, who was on waivers earlier in the day? No Kieffer Bellows? No Schneider? All three of those guys signed contracts but didn’t have them filed with the league, so the official roster treated them as if they didn’t exist.

    Which, for cap purposes, was fine by Lamoriello. He and assistant GM Steve Pellegrini juggled the roster to fit almost perfectly under the Isles’ adjusted cap, coming within $6,645 of using all of the allowed $6-million of reserve cap space freed up by putting Johnny Boychuk on long-term injured reserve. That’s why Komarov and Hickey made the cut and why Jakub Skarek stayed on rather than Schneider, who likely would have easily passed through waivers — Skarek’s entry-level cap hit of $764,167 eats up a bit more space than Schneider’s presumed $750,000 cap hit when his deal gets filed.

    Expect Schneider and Bellows to go on waivers shortly so their contracts can be filed. Once they clear, Skarek goes down to Bridgeport, Komarov likely gets waived and the Isles have the playing roster they want. And it’s likely they’ll clear since teams have already done their gyrations to make their own rosters cap-compliant and workable.

    “That’s Lou — he makes his own rules,” one opposing executive cracked. Whatever works!
