It should be such a simple question, yet it does not have a simple answer. And though it’s been bandied up and down in comments here, we haven’t brought the specific question above the fold lately. So your poll options are below. How We Got Here To review: The Islanders have three goalies on one-way contracts. That’s one too many.
