Snow not interested in big-time UFAs

From Greg Logan of Newsday:

The free-agent market opens Tuesday, but Snow said: “We’re not going to be
major players on July 1. We’re going to kick tires, and we’ll try to make our
team better if it makes sense in our overall plan … The emphasis for me is on
the plan we’ve been talking about, which is developing our own players.”

Good plan by Snow. The Islanders aren’t good enough to attract big free agents unless they overpay substantially, and they have no reason to lock up all that money when they know they aren’t going to compete for a cup. With Snow planning on building from the ground up, that should be comforting for Isles fans.
