New York Islanders
What can we say about the Islanders besides feeling sorry for the team and especially their fans. There's a certain quality to a team that underachieves year after year and yet we expect something better for them. We still don't know why.
We've always liked the Islanders because face it, who doesn't like the plucky underdog? Well, we should use the past tense of 'like' because after the hoedown that happened between the Islanders and the Penguins on February 11th, 2011. After that, we were a little wary about giving our love to the team on the Island.
But we have put that day behind us, a little bit. We understand the pain that the Islanders fans have been going through with the new arena deal not being voted positively on. It really, really sucks for the fans.
Maybe with the players that the Islanders signed over the off season...oh wait, there was one signing? Nope, there's no help on the horizon. We're joking. But in all seriousness it seems as though the Islanders have to depend on the kids that they have now. And hopefully they are ready to take the wheel.

John Tavares is deinitely growing into his looks which makes us sooo happy. That means there's hope for Taylor Hall's face.
Also, Josh Bailey is like a gorgeous farm boy.
Three points each sooo that means six.
