Cappy's Battle Level Trade Deadline

The Islanders have been playing decently well, having a rare clunker here & there as the season starts to wind down (boy that Carolina game was rough).  With the rash of injuries both offensively & defensively, it's tough for the Isles to get on the roll they had earlier in the season.
 
Unfortunately, there isn't much room for error, as they are fighting for first place with the New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins, & Washington Capitals.  The trade deadline has come & gone & here are the "winners" during the trade deadline.
 
Garth Snow- The Daniel Negreanu of NHL GMs is at it again.  He turned Chad Johnson & a conditional third-round pick into a much more servicable back-up goaltender in Michal Neuvirth, a conditional pick into a gritty, puck possessing bottom six forward in Tyler Kennedy, & Dustin Jeffrey for Cory Conacher, who never really had a chance on the Island.  Kennedy & Neuvirth are exactly what the Islanders need; depth guys who bring a lot of character & good play to the table without changing the dynamics of the Islanders as a whole.  Bravo Garth, Bravo.  Also, the fact that Garth can make these moves last-second & keeps his cards close to his chest is very impressive.
 
Michal Neuvirth- The main deal the Islanders made in today's deadline was a deal for Michal Neuvirth, one in which it benefits both parties greatly.  According to graphs on NHL Network, Neuvirth is second in "front of the net saves" with an .889 SV %.  He seems like he is a good, young goaltender on a bad team, & an opportunity to prove himself in a back-up role is exactly what he & the Islanders both need.  It'll be nice to hopefully win some games consistently with your back-up goaltender.
 
Kael Mouillerat- Although it is almost a guarantee that Kael Mouillerat will be sent back down to Bridgeport after the acquisition of Tyler Kennedy, Kael Mouillerat deserves a lot of credit for playing hard, fast & for the most part defensively sound.  He's a grind-it-out type player that the Islanders pride themselves on, with an offensive touch.  It was a pleasure having him up for a few games, & he may have a future on the team.
