The New York Islanders may have been the second NHL team in the Empire State, but it quickly became one of the greatest franchises. The “Isles” dominated in the early 1980s and produced superstars like Mike Bossy, who to this day lead the Islanders’ team stats.

But as great as the Islanders were in their heyday, that was ages ago, and they’ve been less than stellar since. That’s why you can find their NHL odds somewhere in the middle of the league. The team has overachieved in recent seasons but a fifth Stanley Cup is still quite far away.

New York Islanders Stats & History

Thanks in big part to William Shea, who helped establish the New York Mets, the Islanders became an NHL expansion team in 1971. The team played its first full season in 1972-73 and won just 12 out of 78 games. This gifted the team the first overall pick to which it would select star defenseman, Denis Potvin.

The Islanders also enlisted Al Arbour. Another subpar season got the Islanders two more first-round picks, in which they took Clark Gillies and Bryan Trottier. Led by Potvin, the Islanders had one of the biggest one-season turnarounds going all the way to the Semifinals.

Potvin and Trottier consistently led the New York Islanders stats as they consistently made deep playoff runs. In 1977, the team acquired Mike Bossy, who would go on to become one of the greatest goal scorers of all time.

With a core of Potvin, Trottier, and Bossy, the Islanders became a powerful team. Acquiring Butch Goring from the Los Angeles Kings in 1980 proved to be the catalyst. The Islanders went on to win four consecutive Stanley Cups even beating Wayne Gretzky’s Edmonton Oilers.

They made a fifth straight Stanley Cup Final appearance but were defeated by the Oilers, the next dynasty of the 1980s. The team remained competitive until the early 1990s when Arbour permanently retired.

The Islanders then became plagued by mismanagement and bad luck. From 1994-95 to the 2011-12 seasons, the Islanders made the playoffs just four times and failed to win a series. The team also underwent ownership turbulence. The black cloud hanging over the franchise lifted during the 2015-16 season, when the Islanders finally won a playoff series led by captain John Tavares. After missing the playoffs again, Tavares left, handing thus the keys over to Matthew Barzal.

Barry Trotz came in as coach fresh off winning the Stanley Cup with Washington. Trotz coached the Isles to deep playoff runs even coming within one win of returning to the Stanley Cup Final.

However, Trotz’s term with the Islanders was brief as he departed during the 2022 offseason. The Islanders appear perpetually changing, although there is now more hope in the franchise than in the past 30 years.
