Clean sweep for Islanders

Justin Papineau came to his senses and signed a one-year deal with the New York Islanders for an undisclosed amount. This means that all four Islanders players who filed for arbitration managed to work it out before their hearing.

Not a very gifted player, I have no idea what Papineau was thinking when he filed. He's never played a full season in his brief and un-noteworthy career. He should be playing for the league minimum if you ask me. Anything beyond that, he should be thanking his lucky stars.

Now there's just two players left who filed for arbitration: Dicky Tarnstrom and Mattias Ohlund. Roberto Luongo is going to arbitration today, but that was at the request of the Panthers.
