The Islanders have signed goaltender Martin Biron to a one-year contract, the team announced in a statement today.
Biron was 29-19-5 with a 2.76 goals against average in 55 games with the Philadelphia Flyers last year.
"Adding Marty gives us three bona-fide number-one goalies," General Manager Garth Snow said in a press release. "We learned about the importance of stability in our line-up from last year and he now allows us to have another quality starter."
Read between the lines there. Signing another legitimate No. 1 guy like Biron in addition to Dwayne Roloson means the Islanders cannot be fully convinced or encouraged about Rick DiPietro's health and/or progress.
