New York Islanders Fall Again in Metro Power Rankings
Yup. How the mighty have fallen. Ok, maybe not mighty but how about “the-former-100-point-team”? Better? It’s certainly more descriptive.
This New York Islanders team shouldn’t be as bad as this. But you know what? When the team’s power play is 10.8% efficient and their penalty kill is as equally woeful sitting at 77.1% games are bound to swing the other way.
And they have. With a 2-1-2 record since the last ranking, the Isles have fallen to 7th in the division with the playoffs a far cry with this type of pace.
But the season is young. The team still has time to improve and make some ground in the division and push for a spot in the post-season come April.
Andrew Ladd got his first goal, so maybe his new found accuracy can add to the Islanders attack and change these one-goal losses into victories. Maybe the road trip to Florida will galvanize some partnerships throughout the lineup.
Maybe the road trip to Florida will galvanize some partnerships throughout the lineup. Maybe that translates on the ice. Maybe. And a maybe isn’t going to put those team higher in the rankings.
