Islanders Mean Business
March 08, 2019
Now or never.

You hear fans chanting in Barclays Center. Entering 6th season under GM Robin Park, fans demand it is time to deliver. Islanders have been quite successful in regular seasons, but things went downhill once post season started. A couple of early exits from the playoffs left fans only wanting more.

A serious salary-cap crunch is due next season for the Islanders. Given more than a handful of key players in line looking for big raise, some of the key players would be forced to leave the team after the season, GM Park is aware the team is at the peak of the era, or at least, has to be. Time is now if he has to make a push.

Over last two weeks, the Islanders acquired a bona fide first-line center Mark Scheifele from the Senators, Karlsson's defense partner Joel Edmundson from the Knights, and also picked up physical defender Eric Gryba off the waiver. They didn't come cheap though. Along with 22-year-old fan-favorite speed merchant Nikolaj Ehlers, defenseman Vince Dunn, right wing Artturi Lehkonen and 2018 first round pick Ryan Merkley were all shipped out of Long Island.

Despite the recent major acquisition, the Islanders are still considered underdog to the two Eastern-conference powerhouses Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens. It will be interesting to see if Park goes out again exploring rental market once salary-cap is lifted, and furthermore, if the Islanders' ultimate journey lasts longer than before.
