Everytime we say goodbye we say hello.

Gonna take out some of that scratch frustration.

The New York Islanders pretty much landed their known targets on the first day of free agency, signing backup goaltender Thomas Greiss, officially inking 2008 draft pick Kirill Petrov to an NHL deal, and announcing the re-signing of Thomas Hickey.

The list of free agents they let walk, mostly AHLers and/or little-used backups, started to find new homes too. Among the notable ones:

There are others to come, of course. Other franchise free agents include Eric Boulton, Matt Carkner, Dustin Jeffrey, Tyler Kennedy, Colin McDonald, Lubomir Visnovsky, Harry Zolnierczyk and others you may have forgotten about (Jason Clark!).

We'll revisit this list later as more find new homes. Meanwhile, good luck to the new ex-Isles in their new homes! But not too much luck.
