The New York Islanders don’t have the longevity of history that their in-city rivals the Rangers do, but the Islanders have won just as many Stanley Cups (4) as the other New York team. The Islanders franchise is also responsible for one of the greatest dynasties we’ve seen in the NHL, winning all four of their Stanley Cups in successive fashion in the early 1980′s. Since those championships, the Islanders have had plenty of struggles, but the arrival of #1 draft pick Tavares in 2009 seemingly changed their fortunes overnight.
This franchise is now looking to revive those glory days of yesteryear with Tavares as the centrepiece and on a nightly basis the New York Islanders betting lines get plenty of interest.
