Frans Nielsen signed four years/2.1m

Newsday: Greg Logan reports in the Islanders Newsday blog the club has signed center Frans Nielsen to a four year contract totaling 2.1 million that includes a one-way provision in each year of the deal, with Mr Logan writing it virtually assures Nielsen will be on the Islanders roster.

Mr Logan also reports Bruno Gervais was at prospect camp Friday, is said to be in top condition and that negotiations on the club's final restricted free agent are progressing amicably.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
The one-way contracts are filling up the roster but this puts an end to speculation Nielsen would be returning to Bridgeport and another great signing by Garth Snow to lock him up for this long.

Friday camp notables, news articles, a separate blog on the lack of class being shown by Newsday and a blog speculating it's doubtful Garth Snow expected to make a coaching change also highlight Friday coverage at NYI Fan Central along with updates on the latest polls on the left wingers and your choices for the next coach.
