Look at the Bruins, they are off to a bad start but I can assure you they will be in the playoffs for sure. With the exception of two or three games they have been pretty good.

-John Tavares is playing like he's becoming elite
-PA Parenteau has been pretty good so far at a PPG
-Are PK is among the top 10; as well as our PP
-Grabner and Nielsen are starting to come around
-Mark Streit has been great; D as a whole has been solid
-Are goaltending has been pretty damn good

Good things are happening, take a step back and breathe. Everything is going to be OK. Come April this team will be anywhere from 6th-9th. Fairly confident when I say that.

Bottom line is, it's way to early to start declaring there is no progress and the season is a failure.

Logic says the Islanders will improve on their record. They won't win 3 out of every 9 games.
Most teams would improve upon that winning percentage.

Remember what happened last year? The Isles somehow got worse on that type of winning percentage.

The next few games are crucial. You win the next one, your undefeated in regulation over the last 3. You lose?

Well your winless in 6. And the spiral has a chance to become nauseating.
