Islanders shopping for goaltender
TheFourthPeriod.com

The New York Islanders are searching for help between the pipes, as GM Garth Snow is trying to acquire a No. 1 goalie to replace the injured Evgeni Nabokov.

Nabokov, 38, is on the shelf due to a groin injury and his timeline for a return is unclear.

According to New York Newsday, the Islanders are searching for a goalie, as well as a reliable defenseman.

The Ottawa Sun claims Snow could try to get his hands on netminder Ryan Miller from the Buffalo Sabres.

Miller, who has a no-movement clause and will have to approve any deal the Sabres try to make, is in the final year of his contract and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

The Sabres and Isles have already completed one major trade this season, swapping Thomas Vanek for Matt Moulson and draft picks.

Though Miller ultimately prefers to end up out West -- and the Anaheim Ducks could be an option later in the season -- he might be willing to move on to Long Island.

Snow could also speak with the Ducks about Jonas Hiller, who is also in the last year of his respective deal.

The Ducks are believed to be willing to move Hiller, while searching for a replacement elsewhere -- which ties them to Miller.

Newsday believes the Islanders need to acquire "a minutes-eating defenseman," as well, which might prove to be difficult during the season.
