If it wasn't obvious already, the New York Islanders Saturday made it obvious once again that they are in a rebuilding process when they traded veteran goalkeeper Dwayne Roloson to the Tampa Bay Lightning for a minor league defenseman, Ty Wishart.
Also last week the islanders traded defenseman James Wisniewski to the Montreal Canadiens for a pair of draft choices. Roloson, 41, is in his 12th NHL season and obviously not part of the future for a team that is just 11-19-6 this season.
SB Nation's Lighthouse Hockey analyzes what the trade means for the Islanders.
