A look at where the Isles sit in the crease, and whether they can address it at the deadline.
Islanders goaltending has been a hot topic -- the prospects not looking otherworldly, and in fact, this weakness looking like what could separate a competitive team from a playoff berth. So what options are there to fix it?
The Islanders have removed one goaltender who wasn't working. Will his replacement make a meaningful difference?
The New York Islanders have put Rick DiPietro on waivers, the latest in a fascinating saga with the once-franchise goaltender.
Anders Nilsson and Kevin Poulin are first in line to take over the New York Islanders goal crease for the long term. That makes their battle in Bridgeport worth watching.
Kevin Poulin is the most promising goalie prospect in the New York Islanders system, but like all prospects there is uncertainty, and like all Islanders goalies there are injuries.
