Do the Islanders next year have a real shot at 7th/8th seed, or better?

 

I know it’s REALLLLLLY early, and too early to have the slightest idea of knowing, but guessing and thinking is fun! And I wanna see what everyone thinks at this stage anyway.

 

To make a level ground on what we are going forward with, keep all the players we have now in the system, and you could even add one of the top 5 picks of this year to our starting roster, a player in juniors or the ahl to our roster that we own, but no outside players for now(other then one of the top 5 draft picks as I stated).

 

I’ll guess we get the 3rd pick in the draft this year and take landeskog. And I’ll guess Nino makes the team. I’ll just guess up this starting roster:

 

Landeskog-Tavares-Pap/Comeau

Grabner-Nielsen-Okposo

Moulson-Bailey-Nino

Parenteau/Comeau-Konopka-Hunter

Gillies/Haley

 

Streit-Jurcina

A-mac-Hamonic

Eaton-Hillen

Mottau

 

RDP-Poulin

 

Imo, this team has a legit spot a 7th/8th seed as long as the goaltending and main star

 

players stay healthy(as with most teams). All the young players are 1yr more mature, our shutdown line is a strong 2-way line, solid scoring spread all around in the top 9(and better then this year), better size then this year, more physicality then this year, and a defense that should be around nhl the nhl average when healthy with streit heading it. If I had to guess, this team finishes 8th in the east. Above the nhl average

 

for goals for/gm, and around the league average or a little below for the league average for goals against/gm.  

 

What are your guesses?
