Most likely the Isles are done because they spent their million on
Czerakwski. But only MM knows.
I will list the group II's also because this is where an Islander
move would most likely come from as salary is traded for salary.
And I'll include some notables and ex-players from the Isles and
Tigers with some impressions.
