I don't share that opinion. Those teams were attempting to make the playoffs (in the case of one, failing badly but still they were making that attempt). Islanders had zero intentions of making the playoffs given their salary structure and management. They could afford to take a flyer on a player. It worked out for them - to a point (let's not talk like he's an allstar & getting points on a lottery pick team hardly means much).
