It's important for the Islanders (and Oilers, and other young teams) to just make it to the show.
I agree. The Hawks had made the playoffs once in 10 years before the 08-09 season. The Hawks went from 88 pts the year before to 104, still most ppl thought Calgary and Vancouver would beat us since we were so green. Difference is the Hawks were a better team than Isles have been this year and also didn't draw the Wings who were the #1 seed that year in the first round. I hope the Isles can do what they did back in 1993 2nd round series against the Pens when David Volek drove a dagger through Super Mario and co.
