New York Islanders Stanley Cup Betting

Last year began with great anticipation for the New York Islanders. The Isles were coming off three of their best seasons in decades under head coach Barry Trotz. And the new UBS Arena was set to open after a long road trip to begin the season. But that long roadie proved to be the demise of the team’s season. New York was deep in the ditch when they opened their new home. They were never able to recover and missed the playoffs in a very disappointing season.

Barry Trotz, who is one of the most respected head coaches in the NHL, was fired as a result. Trotz and general manager Lou Lamoriello had irreconcilable differences. And at the season-ending player exit interviews were complaints about Trotz and his demanding system. Players wanted more freedom to create, Colorado Avalanche style, but that may be difficult to allow for a team that lacks Colorado’s ability to play that way. Lane Lambert, Trotz's assistant, was promoted to head coach. He will now try to fit the square peg in the round hole.

2022-2023 Stanley Cup Odds: +3500 (Aug, 2022)

Eastern Conference Odds: +1776 (Aug, 2022)

Last year the New York Islanders finished 37-35-10 and finished 5th in the Metropolitan Division. The Islanders ranked 23rd for goal scoring, 12th for power play efficiency, 8th for goals against, and 4th for penalty killing.

Lou Lamoriello, age 79, remains razor sharp regarding his ability to run an NHL franchise. Lamoriello is already in the Hockey Hall of Fame and won three Stanley Cup championships as absolute dictator of the New Jersey Devils. As Barry Trotz discovered last summer, Lamoriello is not afraid to make controversial moves and take the heat.

Head coach Lane Lambert was an NHL forward for almost 20 seasons. Since 2011 he has been a coach in both the minor leagues and as an NHL assistant.

Center Brock Nelson has played his entire NHL career for the Islanders. Last year Nelson posted a career-best 37 goals to go with 22 assists.

Goaltender Ilya Sorokin is coming off a solid 2021-22 season. In 52 games, he had a .925 save percentage and 2.40 goals against average with a record of 26-18-8.

New York Islanders History

Founded in 1972 as an expansion team, the New York Islanders formed one of the greatest dynasties in NHL history with four consecutive Stanley Cup championships from 1980-83. In those days of glory, Hall of Fame head coach Al Arbour led superstars such as Bryan Trottier, Denis Potvin, Mike Bossy, and Billy Smith.

That Islander dynasty was one of the last in NHL history. It was a powerhouse team that was complete in every way. The Islanders could either outscore their opponents or shut them down. The team did not have a weakness.

The late great Al Arbour went down as one of the greatest head coaches in hockey history. He won all four of the Isles’ Stanley Cup titles with the dream roster assembled by general manager Bill Torrey, who is also in the Hall of Fame. Torrey, known for his bow tie and academic demeanor, amassed a level of talent compared to the team that unseated them for the final NHL dynasty; the Edmonton Oilers.

After the dynasty ended, the Islanders played one of the greatest games in NHL History. The 1987 Easter Epic went into four overtimes. The Islanders clinched the game and series over the Washington Capitals thanks to goaltender Kelly Hrudey stopping 73 out of 75 shots.

Since the 1994-95 season, the Islanders have been out more than in. New York made the playoffs only ten times in that span, with just one appearance in the Conference Final (2020).

Retired Islander numbers include defenseman Denis Potvin #5, left wing Clark Gillies #9, center Bryan Trottier #19, right wing Mike Bossy #22, right wing Bob Nystrom #23, left wing John Tonelli #27, goalie Billy Smith #31, and center Butch Goring #91.
