The Islanders are on our tails
Don't look now, but the New York Islanders, once a distant memory, are now just two points behind our New Jersey Devils in the standings.
I suppose one of the good things about a shortened season is that if a team peaks early, it's possible for teams that don't really have playoff-caliber talent to compete for a playoff spot. And quite frankly, I think it would be better for the Metro area IF the Islanders WERE to make the playoffs.
On the rare occasions when the Devils, Isles and Rangers do make the playoffs in the same year (doesn't happen much, and hasn't since 2007), it's clearly more exciting locally.
What do you think? Will the Islanders make the playoffs? Will the Devils? What about the Rangers? Discuss in the comment section below — you don't even have to register to do so.
