Though without the vehemence, I can't say I disagree at all.

If the Islanders *truly* want to be 'players,' shouldn't now be the time to accelerate the process? The Lockout's over, Brooklyn is happening in (not counting this season), two years or less depending on what Ratner can make happen, and over half the league is over $60M in payroll. The Islanders could do wonders for bolstering any 'big market hockey' image they'd be smart to take advantage of by doing everything necessary to give themselves the best shot at winning.

Can the current squad do it? There are far to many x-factors to know, though it's doubtful. How to improve that likelihood? Assemble the best team and play the best players. It's obvious that it isn't DP anymore, and if there was a perfect time for getting DP off of the books and making a few smart moves with teams looking to preemptively get some cap space back, isn't now the beginning of that window?
