Well, that's just the thing. The Islanders apparently were putting more focus into their transition game and their neutral zone coverage than the Rangers were. Again, it doesn't make the Islanders better. It just means they're focusing more on those things than the Rangers were.

To answer the original question, the defense is lacking on both teams and the Isles would be able to beat both teams in a 4 out of 7 series. They aren't the worst team in the conference, despite what every magazine thinks.

Hopefully Yash pulls a Jagr and staples it onto his locker...
