Islanders Individual Winning Percentages

The Islanders are .500 when Milan Jurcina plays. Dumb luck, or talent?

The Islanders have played 53 games (as of this writing) and only 6 players have played in 49 or more games, Zenon Konopka, Matt Moulson, P.A. Parenteau, Blake Comeau, John Tavares and Michael Grabner. Discounting that group, I've compiled how the Islanders do (limited by the gamelogs at Hockey-Reference, which only list wins and losses) depending on who's in the game. And yes, I am blatantly robbing this idea from Jewels From The Crown.

Going strictly by their win-loss record, Andrew MacDonald looks among the best while the record for Hunter (who's been hurt since soon after the Isles' epic losing streaks ended) is among the worst. Jurcina is an interesting case: Is he that important to the team or is it luck that his injuries correspond with losing streaks?

Hamonic's win percentage coincides with his emergence at the same time MacDonald returned from injury. But Sim is not that far behind Hamonic, and Colliton might be considered a downgrade from Sim.

Obviously hockey is a team sport and over the course of the year the Islanders have found ways to lose as a team. But sometimes statistical oddities are fun to play with. Last year MacDonald was 20-26 for .435% and the year before he was 2-1. So for his career with the Islanders he is 38-49, which is a .437 winning percentage. That is probably the best among Islanders who have been here the last 2-3 years.
