Again, a win in which pretty much the names Tavares, Parenteau, Moulson and Streit dominate the score sheet.

Gotta say, am really liking that sassy Ullstrom!

Doubt he's even able to crack the top 25 under 25.

For all the *****ing we do about the Islanders, Toronto might be a worse franchise then the Islanders.
The Maple Leafs spend money and hire name coaches and the Islanders have been on par with them the last 5 years.

2006-2007 Islanders 92 points Maple Leafs 91 points
2007-2008 Islanders 79 points Maple Leafs 83 points
2008-2009 Islanders 61 points Maple Leafs 81 points
2009-2010 Islanders 79 points Maple Leafs 74 points
2010-2011 Islanders 73 points Maple Leafs 85 points


2011-2012 Islanders 71 points (73 games) Maple Leafs 72 points (72 games)

I liken the Leafs to the NY Mets. There is no damn reason why both franchises aren't models for their respective sports. But in baseball you hear people talk about how the Cardinals, Braves, Angels etc are such great franchises. In hockey it's the Devils and Red Wings.

Some clubs are just properly run. Others like the Mets & Leafs aren't. no matter how much opportunity there is for both clubs, they can't ever seem to get the hell out of their own way. Both clubs are looked at as laughing stocks. Not just because they don't win, but because they have no excuse as to why they can't build a winner.

With that said, I'd gladly trade John Tavares & our great prospect pool (which is all we really have) for their situation. Hell at least they know they'll still have a team in 2015. Christ, they know they'll still have a team in 2050.

If you're going to compare the Leafs to any MLB it's the Cubs. Haven't won in ages yet they still sell out games.

Ullstrom was great! But the isles really need to start losing or else we'll screw up the high draftpick!

Screw the high draft pick, win 11 in a row and sneak into the playoffs!

Now seriously, I would rather not finish in the lottery, to ensure we draft a defenceman. Finish on a strong note, rather than epic fail like the Leafs, Habs and Oilers.

i always want my team to win games no matter if the draft pick won't be as good. The more games you win, the better the players will feel about the team, and that's worth more than 2-3 spots higher at a draft

Hey, come on now - the Wilpons just said they promise to rebuild the team this time!

I guess the last couple of "rebuilds" were fabricated.

The best case scenario, is the Islanders keep winning, but so does Toronto, Carolina, Buffalo, Tampa Bay, Winnipeg and Minnesota, insuring the Islanders a top 5 pick.

Sort of funny if we get that 5th pick again, we picked there 3 of the past 4 years
