All-Time Coliseum Team

With the inevitable news finally arriving, I thought it would be a good time to take a look back at the last forty years and try to pull the best four line team of Islanders that played at the old barn. Due to the changes in the game stressing defense, Milbury trading players like fantasy hockey and the general lack of success over the past two decades, it is difficult to compare players across the years.

With that - here is my 40th anniversary team.

1st line: Gillies, Trots, Bossy

2nd line: Tonelli, Lafontaine, Nystrom

3rd line: Brent Sutter, Turgeon, Flatley (Brent out of position - but how could we not have a Sutter)

4th line: Tavares, Goring, Palffy

D1: Potvin, Morrow

D2: Tomas Jonsson, Kenny Jonsson

D3: Rich Pilon, Stefan Persson

G1: Smith

G2: Hrudey

Coach and GM - does not even have to be written

Hardest players to leave off the team: Bourne, Vukota, Kasparaitis and King
