New York Islanders Rank Low in Metro Power Ranking
New York Islanders
Record Over Last 10: 1-3-0
The isles just aren’t very good right now. Is that too blunt? It shouldn’t be. It’s not saying they’re garbage and will never amount to anything. It’s just a simple view at what the product on the ice has produced.
And it’s not that there aren’t any positive to take from the Isles opening 4 games. The rookies look pretty good. Anthony Beauvillier got his first NHL goal of the season against the Sharks.
And Mathew Barzal, while needing to remember not to play the puck from the penalty box looks like a nice piece for the future.
The rookies look decent (brain farts aside)
But the issue for the Islanders rests with the top line of Tavares-Ladd-Insert name Here. The duo have generated two points over a four-game sample. That’s just not enough for players who are making the type of money they’re…making.
With such a poor start, Coach Jack Capuano is already a +375 to be the first coach fired according to Bodog. No pressure Jack.
