But the Islanders ahve to be the worst managed and run (at least in the past decade. Early pick draft flops (i.e. Scissons), bad trades (we all know these ones), giving players like Yashin big number, long term contracts. This team went from being unable to afford Palffy to paying Yashin, Peca and Hamrlik huge amounts of money. What's up with that?
Well the Islanders did change ownership between those signings didn't they?

But at least the Flames can be near the top of the league in something
