The New York Islanders have a wide range of prospects in their system. Here are the 10 best heading into 2019-2020.

Just a year ago, the New York Islanders had the fifth-best prospect pool according to Corey Pronman. Their prospect pool is still extremely strong, and they are deep in multiple areas now after this past draft.

I guess first you have to distinguish what a prospect actually is. For me, Josh Ho-Sang, Michael Dal Colle, and Devon Toews can no longer be considered prospects. At this point, they’ve been around for too long for us to continue writing about what they could be at the next level.

Now, that doesn’t mean that anyone with NHL experience isn’t a prospect anymore that’s not the case either. You’ll see there’s still one person on this list who has some NHL experience but is still a prospect in our eyes.

Without further ado let’s get into and break down the 10 best Islanders in the farm system, starting with 10 and working our way up to one.
