Too Much Ted

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

It became too much about Ted; became too much about Ted Nolan-type players. Every team can use the prototypical Nolan overachiever, but no team can progress from the bottom half of the league when more limited hard-hat players get their ice time at the expense of young, raw talents in need of nurturing.

The Islanders cannot attract prime free agents. They won’t even listen. The Islanders have no other choice. They must build from within. They also can choose not to trade down out of the first five in the Entry Draft - and once upon a time could have chosen to keep Roberto Luongo and Zdeno Chara - but these are different matters.
