The Islanders roster doesn’t look impressive. At all. We’re led by a rookie, and our defense is atrocious. However, the Islanders got something up their sleeve to lead them to the playoffs.
After a wonderful 4-0 win, Islanders fans everywhere are pumped for the upcoming season. Unfortunately, the next game is Saturday! Even worse, it’s against the Nashville Predators, in Nashville. That game is the start of a challenging west-coast road trip.
What’s giving Islanders hope is their management. After all, we pretty much have the best coach in the league. Also, our GM is competent- which is a huge improvement. Although we lost our “all-star” center, I’d say we improved (in the long term). This team is playing with passion. Passion is our secret weapon. This team wants to win and they want to PROVE PEOPLE WRONG.
