Your best players are what "holds you back" - not your fringe players.
In the unique case of the NYIslanders, fringe NHLers get big minutes, in key parts of the game no less. Namely: Parenteau, Schremp, Grabner, Weight, Konopka, Gillies, Sim (until the other day) - these players probably don't make another roster in the NHL, not in any role similar to what they have on the NYI, that's for sure.
The defense is good. All would probably have jobs in the NHL. They aren't great, they aren't big and don't really play physical, but they are of NHL quality (albeit limited)
The team is held back because players are set-up to fail. Too much is asked of them based on what they can be EXPECTED TO DELIVER.
