Isles still need a forward

The New York Islanders are likely to add at least one more player before the season starts.

As proposed by Newsday's Arthur Staple, Garth Snow's club is still short up front.

"... I'd expect (the Islanders) to keep mining the waiver wire, perhaps for an extra forward. Only have 13 healthy now, including R. Strome ..."

However, one more forward might be sufficient. Of all the junior call-ups, Ryan Strome is one of the favorites to stick in the NHL all season.
