Put yourself in the drivers seat. What are the top 5 or 6 things the Islanders can do to turn this organization into a winning franchise?

That's it right there. They have the worst building ever with the worst lease ever. Rectify that and the other stuff will correct itself eventually.

With Tavares, Bailey, Moulson (who they just resigned today for 3 more years) Comeau, Okposo, Niederreiter, Hamonic, Wishart, de Haan, DeHart, that's some pretty good young kids to build around, + another high pick this year to take one of Landeskog, Larsson, Nugent-Hopkins, Couturier etc.... they will be fine in a couple of years, I could only wish the Leafs had prospects like this :cry:

That's probably the most glaring change I can see being needed, but also one of the most unlikely, I think.

Agreed. No way they can get out of that lease. Wang had a hardon for the Lighthouse Project but, in this economy, it never had a chance.

Yeah but Milbury is a tool.

Also, dont forget the pick Ottawa used to draft Spezza was from the Isles.

The man was terrible at trading, but at least he was good at the draft table.

Sure, but that's not just him, his scouts I bet had alot to do with with that.

One thing people forget when teams draft, for the most part the GM's are taking the scouts word on a player, GM's get out to see some players, they dont have time to get out and see all players.

If you dont have good scouts you wont be drafting good, I have heard many GM's say after a draft when being interviewed that they really did not see a player but took him anyways because his scouts loved that player, if you cant take your scouts word your f*cked.
