New York Islanders 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

This season saw the New York Islanders seemingly in solid playoff contention, but it was not enough to save the job of Lane Lambert, who was fired on January 20. In his place came the volatile Patrick Roy, who blew himself up after three seasons as head coach of the Colorado Avalanche eight years ago. After a slow adjustment period, the Islanders finally took to Roy, who finished strong at 20-12-5 to gain the Playoffs. The Islanders had mediocre metrics for the season, but their strong finish outshined that.

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.
