We build a team to suck next year, we will get that, and then some.
That thinking is what is making the Islanders suffer. They have Tavares and Grabner and still can't make it to an 8th spot. Best way to go far is to systematicly make the playoffs. Players aren't numbers they are people and when they lose they get worst and when they win they get better as simple as that. We tanked this year but there's no reason we shall tank next. I'd prefer finishing 9th next season than 15th.
