I think the islanders are on the upswing but they are not much better than the Flames.

Both are bubble teams.
the isles are 6 or 7 years ahead of the flames as far as a rebuilding process goes, the flames rebuild started last year just before the trade deadline and no the isles didn't just make the playoffs last year, they clinched early then some teams passed them, the isles are a year away from being a contender and i think players in the league see that too
