Islanders sign vet Reasoner, 2010 pick Kabanov
The New York Islanders on Friday signed veteran center Marty Reasoner, reportedly for two years, and inked 2010 third-round pick Kiril Kabanov to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Multiple media say Reasoner, 34, signed a two-year deal; TSN says it's worth $2.7 million. He's coming off the best offensive season of his 12-year NHL career, posting 14 goals and 32 points in 82 games with the Florida Panthers. Reasoner has 96 goals and 255 points in 706 regular-season games with St. Louis, Edmonton, Boston, Atlanta and Florida.

The Islanders took Kabanov, a Moscow native playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, in the third round (No. 65) of last year's Entry Draft. He played 39 games in the QMJHL this season with Moncton and Lewiston, scoring 11 goals and 28 points, then added 8 goals and 20 points in 15 playoff games with Lewiston. Kabanov was drafted by the Montreal franchise for 2011-12 after Lewiston disbanded.
Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
