1. Islanders stay in NY: They have a new home and didn't have to move out of the state. No it is not in Nassau but they are still on Long Island. The Barclays Center is not perfect but the playoff atmosphere was maybe not as loud as NVMC but damn close.
2. 2nd straight 100 point Season: Overall it was another successful regular season. We have not had this happen since the 1980s. Was the season perfect, by no means, but we are playing good hockey.
3. WE WON A PLAYOFF SERIES!!!!!!: We have not done that since 1993.
Yes, we lost the series against the Lightning, but we are actually ENJOYING watching Hockey again. For too many years it was more of a torture year in and out to root for this team.
Hopefully we now take the next step. Do we need changes to get there? Yes, BUT LETS ENJOY WHAT WE ACCOMPLISHED THIS YEAR FOR A LITTLE LONGER, BEFORE WE START COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW FAR WE ARE FROM WINNING OUR 5TH STANLEY CUP.
