Islanders Now Have Something To Build On

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

The path here, to the overtime of Game 6 of the first round and to accompanying accolades was actually the easy part. It’s not about being quirky anymore. It’s about solidifying. About building on a solid foundation. About getting from here to there by becoming the type of franchise that can attract marquee free agents.

It won’t be about the building in Brooklyn. It will be about the organization.

The Islanders have been playing with house money against the Penguins, and I bet you thought it was Charles Wang’s money. This is the last time for that.

One round doesn’t quite qualify as a joy ride. But it has sure been fun. The Islanders have raised the echoes. They have raised expectations.

Now comes the hard part. Now it gets serious. It’s about time.

good for the Islanders I’m surprised they made it a series. They have some good core players to build around, but their goal tending sucks gotta get rid of nabbyand make a play for a Lou.although highly doubt he would want to go to that team. They could always sign a veteran like Thomas…
