The New York Islanders are on the verge of a midseason turnaround, and a few key players who are a part of that are going to be free agents at the end of this season.
The Islanders have already extended the contract of John Tavares, but he is not the only one who the team needs. Kyle Okposo has his five-year contract and, after a rough start, he has turned his season around and is playing up to expectations. The same goes for sophomore Michael Grabner.
The Islanders are starting to play as the team that fans want to see, thanks to young talent, veteran leadership and an improving coaching staff.
If the Isles want to keep their current success going, a few key signings need to occur.
