There are three large contracts on the New York Islanders cap that they might need to move at some point. Andrew Ladd carries a $5.5 million cap hit for the next four years. Johnny Boychuk has a $6 million cap hit and Nick Leddy carries a $5.5 million cap hit over the next three years.
That’s a ton of money on the books for assets that aren’t worth the money now (or ever), have declined significantly, or they no longer fit a need on the roster.
So what, and when, can the New York Islanders move any of these deals?
