It turns out, they weren't very good, yet I read about these great prospects. It would seem all of those AHL teams that made the playoffs, probably have better prospects then the Islanders.
What am I missing?
Tons of injuries. Massive call-ups after the lockout. 5 or 6 stand out players combined with a weak ECHL team does not work very well, especially if you have no defense.

I would say a questionable job by Pellerin too.
