New York Islanders v New York Rangers

When we shot this yesterday, the New York Islanders were atop the Eastern Conference (they’ve since been passed by Tampa Bay), which put the team in a unique position -- for the first time in a long time, people are talking about the Isles not as a potential playoff team, but a potential Cup contender.

Yes, this is still the same organization that hasn’t won a postseason series since 1993. But regardless, the conversation about the Isles has changed -- you start to dig a little deeper, poke bigger holes and dissect the roster more intricately than before.

So, how do the Isles stand up to that kind of scrutiny?
