The Islanders don't seem to be doing much with their player development and I expect they will have depth problems. They should be pretty good with cap space where they may be able to bring in several very good UFA's so they should be able to plug some of the holes. Getting the best UFA's to go to Long Island though will probably be a problem. Not a very exciting setting for a hockey player these days. Even so they seem better positioned to take a run at Marian Hossa than we are. And I wouldn't altogether underestimate Ted Nolan's ability to get the best out of his team. They had injury problems all of last year. I don't see them as a playoff team but I don't think they're going to be as bad as last year.
