Starting off with the rumors, there's a lot this week.The one rumor I'm hearing a lot is Jason Allison. I heard from my most reliable source that the Islanders will either sign him this week or invite him to training camp. I feel they are more likely to sign him then invite him. The reason for that is because Jason put up tremendous numbers in the 2005-06 season playing only 66 games, scoring 17 goals with 43 assists. That's just what we need. I also think he could thrive under Ted Nolan; might be a perfect fit.
Note** This rumor is becoming more unlikely. I will keep you posted. The reason why it's becoming more unlikely is it seems Jason wants more than a 1 year/incentive laden deal. Talks have stopped for now.
