They have no goalie.

They hired their backup goalie to be GM and their owner is Charles Wang. Bad as Dolan is, he's no Charles Wang. The isles are a joke of a franchise.
Im not sold the Islanders will be a force in the future, but John Tavares will be a better player than any Ranger coming up through our system - and by a pretty wide margin, in my opinion.
