The Islanders haven't won a playoff series since Al Arbour was coaching.
2. The Oilers don't have Wang. It's not entirely clear that the Islanders ownership will shell out the dough necessary to sustain any level of success, should their prospect pool turn out well. Katz has demonstrated a willingness to spend to the cap for ****, so surely he'll spend as needed to maintain an actually competitive squad.
Those "differences" remain to be seen.
