Mikhail Grabovski - #84 - Center - 5'11" - 183lbs
News: Grabovski has been playing on a line with Nikolay Kulemin during training camp, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Impact: Not only is this duo playing on a line together but their lockers are also next to each other. They will anchor the second line for the Islanders and how they play together could go a long way towards determining how successful a season the team will have.
Nikolai Kulemin - #86 - Left Wing - 6'1" - 225lbs
News: Kulemin has been playing on a line with Mikhail Grabovski during training camp, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Impact: This was expected once the Islanders signed both in free agency. The pair had a productive season in 2010-11 playing together in Toronto and the Islanders are hoping to rekindle some of that magic on the second line.
Lubomir Visnovsky - #11 - Defense - 5'10" - 197lbs
News: Visnovsky has completely recovered from the concussion that ended his 2013-14 season and reported to camp, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Impact: Visnovsky may not be the defenseman he once was, but he should still anchor the Islanders' top power-play unit and could be a viable fantasy option if health permits.
Ryan Strome - #18 - Center - 6'1" - 188lbs
Sep 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Strome could begin the season in the AHL, according to Newsday.
Impact: The reason for this has nothing to do with Strome's play; he just might be caught in a numbers game, as the Isles are deep at forward, but only Strome and Anders Lee can be sent to the AHL without passing through waivers. Of course, a trade is still possible as well. The Isles could always move a forward to a team like Boston or Chicago that's having salary cap problems and might want to deal a defenseman. On the flip side of things, Strome could end up on the top line with John Tavares and Kyle Okposo. This year's training camp should be an interesting one for the Isles.
