Puck Prospectus on the Islanders

Editor's Note: Good fodder for debate here, thanks to AP77's find of a stat-based projection for this year's Isles.

Here is a great article from Puck Prospectus, which is finally bringing high-quality statistical analysis to hockey commentary, on the Islanders' likely standing next season:

Hard to argue with a lot of that.  I wouldn't mind another last place finish and Taylor Hall. 

One interesting point, however, is the argument that the Isles are doing precisely the wrong thing in potentially artificially inflating their point total with above-average goalies and a well below-average team.  I still don't think that will be enough to keep them out of the cellar next season, but it's an interesting point to debate.
