New York Islanders Offensive Leaders Since the Lockout

Just for fun, I thought I'd check on the Islanders offensive leaders at various positions in each season since the lockout. It's a narrow view but one that gives you a picture of how much the team has turned over in both roles and personnel since 2005-06.

The injury scourge that the Isles experienced in several of these seasons affects things, so be sure to look at the points per game column, where John Tavares looks good. Obviously ice time (including powerplay share and role) are huge factors, but this is a glimpse of who the Islanders have relied on and placed in those roles.

It's a powerful statement about 2008-09 and its misfortunes that Andy Hilbert and Doug Weight are on this list.

*Obviously all the 2010-11 entries are through 73 games played (or less, depending on the player).

Centers

Season Player G A Pts. Pts./GP Plus/Minus
2010-11* Tavares 26 34 60 0.86 -15
2009-10 Tavares 24 30 54 0.66 -15
2008-09 Weight 10 28 38 0.72 -15
2007-08 Comrie 21 28 49 0.64 -21
2006-07 Sillinger 26 33 59 0.72 5
2005-06 Yashin 28 38 66 0.80 -14

Mike Comrie and Doug Weight? Say no more.

Right Wings

Season Player G A Pts. Pts./GP Plus/Minus
2010-11* Parenteau 18 30 48 0.67 -5
2009-10 Okposo 19 33 52 0.65 -22
2008-09 Okposo 18 21 39 0.6 -6
2007-08 Guerin 23 21 44 0.54 -15
2006-07 Satan 27 32 59 0.73 -12
2005-06 Satan 35 31 66 0.80 -8

Despite his 30 goals, Michael Grabner is currently two points behind P.A. Parenteau -- a reflection of how that top line gets the majority of the choice offensive opportunities, including appearing together on the powerplay.

Left Wings

Season Player G A Pts. Pts./GP Plus/Minus
2010-11* Moulson 30 18 48 0.66 -9
2009-10 Moulson 30 18 48 0.59 -1
2008-09 Hilbert 11 16 27 0.40 -3
2007-08 Fedotenko 16 17 33 0.49 -9
2006-07 Blake 40 29 69 0.84 1
2005-06 Blake 28 29 57 0.75 0

In their years, Hilbert and Fedotenko were part of a rotating cast at LW that were all pretty close in points.

Defensemen

Season Player G A Pts. Pts./GP Plus/Minus
2010-11* MacDonald 4 23 27 0.47 7
2009-10 Streit 11 38 49 0.60 0
2008-09 Streit 16 40 56 0.76 5
2007-08 Berard 5 17 22 0.41 -17
2006-07 Poti 6 38 44 0.56 -1
2005-06 Campoli 9 25 34 0.43 -11

A table-riffic way of saying, "Mark Streit is the best defenseman this team has had since the lockout."

I suppose it's late enough to say this: One area where the Isles have had better health luck is on that top forward line.

Without pr*j*ct*ng or assuming, heh, "health," it should be fun to see how this looks next season with Tavares, Mark Streit, Michael Grabner, Kyle Okposo, Matt Moulson, P.A. Parenteau and Andrew MacDonald all in the fold at the same time.
