NHL 12 Legends


Again the NHL and their licensing properties have ignored the New York Islanders Dynasty. Does the NHL want to forget 1979/1980 - 1982/1983 like it did not happen. 4 staight Stanley Cups, 5 Hall of Famers and not one of those players make the cut?  But Borje Salming does!!!!!! Are you kidding me? Borje Salming could not wipe Denis Potvin's skates.

Ok right now we are a horrible team but why are the Maple Leafs represented. What have they done in the past 40+ years?

I understand they wanted players from the 80s and forward and they added Gordie Howe (no argument there after all he is Mr. Hockey). Ok what about the team that won the 1st 4 Stanley Cups in the 80s. Mike Bossy 50 in 50? Bryan Trotts 6 Stanley Cups only? Potvin only arguably the 2nd best defenseman ever?

The NHL acts like 1979/1980 - 1982/1983 never happened, WELL IT DID!!!!! No other US team has ever come close to what the Islanders did only the Habs have equaled & surpassed that. Maybe it is time the NHL remembers.
