- — Rob McGregor (@RobMcGregor35)Thu, May 22 2014 20:23:06#Isles plugged their biggest hole by signing Halak. With even league average goaltending last year, they'd have been in the fight to the end

- — Fear The Fin (@fearthefin)Thu, May 22 2014 19:47:24Obviously Halak won't play every game but if he can give the Isles even ~60 starts at his career average, that's gonna be a big swing.
