From Greg Logan of Newsday:
It doesn’t exactly fit in with the Islanders’ youth movement, but for those who value team toughness, it should come as good news that general manager Garth Snow has rewarded 33-year-old defenseman Brendan Witt with a two-year contract extension worth $6 million. Terms of the deal were disclosed Tuesday night.

Witt is now locked in for the next three years at $8.5 million total. That is a respectable number for a solid stay-at-home defenseman with strong leadership skills. While Witt is not part of the youth movement on the Island, he will set a good example for the young players on the roster.
