Well, Garth Snow has finally jumped into the free agent pool, signing 33-year-old Mark Eaton, formerly of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Eaton is 6-2, 205 pounds and gives some more size to the back end to the Isles.

The deal is a two year contract at $2.5 million a year.

You can add Milan Jurcina and PA Parenteau to the list, as both were signed to one year deals a few minutes ago.

Islanders have just signed tough guy Zenon Konopka, formerly of the Tampa Bay Lightning. He replaces recently departed enforcer Tim Jackman.

More to come!
