You said they are “without a doubt a bottom 3 team in the division” with over two months to go. That is like saying, the Avs are without a doubt a wild card team. That would ridiculous to say. Are they the wagon like last year? I would say no, because they were getting timely goaltending and losing Kadri was huge, but they are still cup contenders. None of us know how anything will play out and most is conjecture, speculation, gut feeling, etc. I responded to your post respectfully and with points to back up my opinion, outlook, assessment, whatever, and I get back the look of confusion? Despite the “current” standings and how teams are currently constructed, I don’t think the Islanders are bottom 3 team. Without Horvat they are a very capable team to take a wild card spot and with Horvat, in my most humble opinion, makes them more than capable. Could that change, yes. Could I be wrong? Hell yes. Is anyone else’s outlook without a doubt accurate? fvck no. Injuries, future acquisitions or a team or two that gets hot down the stretch could change all that. Re: standings, it’s fair to point out that two teams ahead of them (the Penguins and Sabres) have three games in hand on the Isles. That hurts.
