Hockey Prospectus: NYI system is 2nd Overall
"Through high picks and shrewd late round selections the Islanders have built a heck of a system with great upside and crazy depth. There were several quality prospects I left off the top ten just because of the system's depth. Considering the fact the Islanders have graduated names like Ty Wishart and Travis Hamonic and the other young players on the big club, the young talent in this organization is nothing short of elite. They have upside and depth at both skater positions, and have two quality young goalies in Kevin Poulin and Mikko Koskinen. There is no weakness to this system at all really, and a lot to love." What's really interesting here is Kabanov ranked 2nd (above Nino).
