The New York Islanders made the playoffs back in 2006. Since then the Islanders have iersed themselves in a rebuilding phase. This is a phase where a sports team will set aside the next few years and acquire a lot of young talent. Usually after acquiring the young talent, they will start to
Mature and develop. After the 3-5 years of rebuilding at this point the team normally is ready to compete for a playoff spot. The New York Islanders are about one or two acquisitions away from being done with their rebuilding phase. This phase started in back in 07-08 when the Islanders got rid of the big contracts like Jason Blake, Alexei Yashin, and Ryan Smith and started acquiring young talent. The Islanders drafted top six forward Kyle Okposo. They also drafted Josh Bailey, Blake Comeau and Frans Nielsen. Years later the Islanders would draft the centerpiece of their new core John Tavares and along with him they got 30 goal scorer Matt Moulson an speedster Michael Grabner. On defense the Islanders added Amdy MacDonald and Travis Hamonic. At this point the Islanders have most offhand core in place just lacking one or two more depth defenseman. Each year the Islanders get bigger, faster and stronger and this is visible in the increase in stats each and every on of them put up. In at least 3 years if not sooner the Islanders will be back in the playoffs ready to vontend for a cup.
