I think more depends on whether JT is able to imprint his identity and work ethic on the organization as a whole. That's a ton of leadership to ask from a young guy. But it could happen.
That's why I'd take the Isles group against the Oilers. It takes a special person to turn around the Islanders. Mere skill is a small matter in comparison.
Which isn't to say I disagree. What I mean is if JT succeeds (in the sense of becoming NYI's Stevie Yzerman), more Islanders prospects will succeed too.
