If the Islanders finish 5th or 6th in the east, they are a fun up & coming team that regained a ton of respect throughout the league. ESPECIALLY if they were to beat the Habs or Caps, and I think they'd have an excellent chance to beat both of those 2 teams.
If the Isles finish 8th (which it looks like they will) then the Isles are just the same forgotten team that happened to make the playoffs because the Flyers, Devils & to a lesser extent Rangers all had subpar seasons.
I'm not upset that they lost last nights game. But I'm very bothered by the way they played last night. There was a ton to play for and they really have no excuse to come out the way they did.
I also will never understand why Boulton & Carkner are ever in the lineup at the same time. We don't really need either of them, but certainly not both. It isn't even like we're a tough punishing physical team when they play. We're just a slower & less skilled team that may have a fight. Players like Boulton actually make me want the NHL to ban fighting. That way we'll never have to see players like him waste a roster spot.
