Isles, Bailey set to talk contract

The New York Islanders have 13 free agents to worry about this off-season, and GM Garth Snow is starting to get a feel for who he wants to bring back.

Islanders captain Mark Streit will not be back with the team next season, choosing to test the free agent waters July 5.

It's believed forward Brad Boyes will also be fishing for a new home this summer.

With five restricted free agents and eight impending unrestricted free agents on the roster, Snow wants to have an understanding of who is willing to re-sign with the organization.

One RFA the Islanders want to get locked up fairly quickly is center Josh Bailey, who is wrapping up a two-year, $2.1 million contract.

Bailey, 23, will undoubtedly be qualified, but the team is looking to sign him to a multi-year contract.

According to Katie Strang of, the Islanders and Bailey are expected to commence negotiations soon, as dates to talk have been scheduled.

Bailey, who registered 11 goals and 19 points in 38 games with the Isles this season, has arbitration rights and could go down that road if contract talks don't bear fruit.
