The 3rd line of Powe-Boyle-Pyatt does a suitable job in a checking role, but you just know they're not going to score a goal when they're out there.
I'd love to have a guy like Matt Martin on the Rangers. Then again, they had Prust who is pretty similar...
Islanders just seem like they have some good pieces but cannot put it together. Part of it's probably coaching and part of it is probably not having the kind of depth they need to consistently put pressure on teams and score, while not being bad defensively
