He's gotta keep last year's momentum going, they are going to need him to be the player he was in the second-half...if not better

They're going to need him to be better. He'll be fine as long as he plays with Hickey. Hickey is so good that he'll cover for Pulock's short comings.

Would have liked a little longer term for Pulock considering the state this team is in right now but I'm happy he's signed.

I'm sure the Islanders would have liked more term too, but Pulock pretty much just accepted his QO and probably wants the bridge deal so he can get paid big time in two years.

Yep most likely. Positive is he has to play well to get paid. Negative is if this team is still a steaming pile of shat by then he's gone or if he stays we'll be paying him big time of he excels. Well at least Martin will be off the books by then unless we extend him

I agree and I like his chances with a very good coaching staff. Hopefully Leddy bounces back and Pulock continues to develop and if Toews can do well, that's 3 puck moving dmen.

It's very Islanders that Ryan Pulock is the only defenseman NOT signed through 2075

I'm pretty sure he'll still be an RFA when this current deal expires, except he'll be arb-eligible by then (I think).

I could be wrong but I thought he was a UFA after this one he just signed?

Finally a signing we dont have to cringe at, hopefully he continues his improved play from last year and toews earns a spot and plays well too

His second half play was up there with top players last year it was on twitter a while back, I think he can be that player as he seemed to gain a lot of confidence last year. Couple that with a real team defensive system and it stands to reason he should be better

Did Pulock not want a long term deal? That’s the only way a two year term makes sense, as he retains his RFA status after the two years. But man, Barzal and Pulock could realistically both be up for huge raises after 2019-20.

I'm not positive, but with the small amount of NHL games he's seen and his age...I'm nearly positive he'll be an RFA after this two year deal. He will probably get arb rights, though.

If Brock Nelson is still an RFA after playing nearly 400 games at age 26 then I have to imagine Pulock will definitely be RFA still after playing 84 at age 23.

- eichiefs9

In two years he’ll be arb eligible and that’s when he’ll get a major deal from the Isles if he continues on this trajectory. It will just cost NYI a lot more than if they did it now

Is it number of games played or years in league? Seems like teams get the 3 year entry deal and then another before the players are ufas, you will probably know

Nevermind i looked it up
NHL. A player who is no longer considered to be entry-level, but does not qualify as an unrestricted free agent, becomes a restricted free agent when his contract expires. A player may only declare himself to be an unrestricted free agent if he is over the age of 27 or has played in the league for a minimum of 7 years.

Well yeah, I see a lot of people saying stuff like that but if Pulock didn't want to sign a long-term deal then it's not like the Isles could put a gun to his head and hand him a pen

Could be smart on his part I believe lee bet on himself similarly although he produced, personally I hope he becomes a legit top 4 d man not sure if he can be a top two guy unless his play in his own end continues to improve
BINGO!

I wish. Goalies probably hold them back again unless Darling or Mrazek rebound big time.

Yeah, he's betting on himself for sure. Him and Barzal are going to be two of the only interesting things to watch this year

Correct but could you imagine if the won the lotto? They would actually be better off and have more cap space to sign players. Well unless they keep doing what they did a few weeks ago
