Islanders Bits: Off-Day Interviews, Parenteau Contract Marker?

Matt Moulson can play.

Plenty of off-day media and other news of interest to Islanders Country. Here are some of the news bits you don't want to miss:

Speaking of many millions, Mikhail Grabovski re-upped with the Maple Leafs for five years at $5.5 million AAV. Grabovski is an underrated three-zone center who was heading to UFA at age 28. He was going to get paid. P.A. Parenteau is an underrated winger who has performed well even when not lined up with point machine John Tavares. He too will get paid. Question is how much? (There was a recent FanPost soliciting your take-or-leave offers.)

Practice Lines Minus JT's Wingers

Matt Moulson and P.A. Parenteau each got rest days (though Newsday's Arthur Stapel points out Moulson had 10 stitches for that missed high stick). That created a different JT line for sure:

Grabner-Tavares-Martin
Ullstrom-Nielsen-Bailey
Niederreiter-Cizikas-Okposo
Pandolfo-Reasoner

Staple also said Al Montoya and Rick DiPietro skated afterward but are not close to returning.

A really nice backgrounder and what this might mean for the NHL over at Mile High Hockey.
