Selecting the, Well, 13th to 15th Greatest New York Islanders in History

This thing is already in the bag...but wait, is that Bobby Nystrom's music?

The New York Islanders online poll to select the 15 greatest Islanders in history is still on-going, though they've handicapped the contest a bit as votes have come in.

In the latest promo, their suggested top 12 is unchanged from last time, though the order is a bit different -- see the previous ranks in parentheses below:

  1. Mike Bossy
  2. Bryan Trottier (3)
  3. Denis Potvin (2)
  4. Billy Smith
  5. Bobby Nystrom (9)
  6. Clark Gillies (5)
  7. Pat LaFontaine (6)
  8. John Tavares (7)
  9. Butch Goring
  10. John Tonelli
  11. Ken Morrow (12)
  12. Pierre Turgeon (11)
  13. Brent Sutter
  14. Bob Bourne (15)
  15. Ziggy Palffy (14)

According to the promotional email, the first 12 are "pretty much a lock," but spots 13-15 "remain up for grabs.

The voting link, should you wish to try to maneuver someone else into those final three spots (or influence the order of the other 12), is here and goes until September 30.

And still, not a Frans to be found :(.
