More about New York Islanders tickets
 
The New York Islanders joined the NHL to start the 1972-73 season. Initially the league hadn't planned on expansion that year, but with the rival WHA eying up the brand new Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island the NHL made a preemptive strike and brought the Isles into the fold.

Rather than trying to acquire a core of proven veterans from other teams, Islander's GM Bill Torrey made the gutsy move to build his team through the draft. With a roster that included future Islanders stars Billy Smith and Bob Nystrom the team finished with just 12 wins in their first season. However, that brutal finish would ultimately prove to be a watershed moment in the team's history. With the first overall pick in the 1973 draft the club selected Denis Potvin, a junior star that was heralded as the next Bobby Orr, and a player now recognized as one of the greatest ever to don a New York Islanders jersey.

Potvin made an immediate impact with the club, winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL's rookie of the year. The team had another poor year, but already it was obvious the young club had some key pieces to become a force in the NHL.

In the 1974-75 the club pulled off one of the greatest turnarounds in NHL history, jumping 32 points in the standings and making the playoffs for the first time. After dispatching the New York Rangers in the first round the Islanders pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in professional sports history. Down 3-0 in their second round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins the Islanders stormed back to win four straight and win the series. At that point it was only the second time in NHL history such a feat had occurred. Amazingly, they almost pulled off the same miracle again in the very next round, rallying from a 3-0 series deficit against the defending Stanley Cup champion Philadelphia Flyers to force a seventh and deciding game. However, the experience and the talent of the Flyers proved too much, and they ended the Islanders' Cinderella run and went on to win their second straight cup.

Over the next few seasons the Islanders continued to improve rapidly, drafting such stars as Bryan Trottier and Mike Bossy. The pair won back to back Calder Trophies, and Bossy set an NHL record (at that time) scoring 53 goals in his rookie campaign.

With so many stars on the roster it was only a matter of time before the team became a Stanley Cup contender. In 1978-79 they owned the league's best regular season record. However, come playoff time they bowed out unexpectedly in the semi-finals against the New York Rangers, denying fans a chance to see what would have been a legendary battle between a powerful Montreal Canadiens team that had won the last three Stanley Cups, and a Islanders squad poised to become the next great hockey dynasty.

That adversity would serve them well in the following year. This time they would not be denied, defeating the Philadelphia Flyers in 6 games in the Stanley Cup Finals on the strength of a dramatic overtime goal by Bob Nystrom. It was the beginning of the Islanders' dynasty, and over the next three seasons they defeated the Minnesota North Stars, the Vancouver Canucks and the Edmonton Oilers respectively en route to four straight Stanley Cup championships.

The Drive For Five

In 1984 the Islanders reached the Stanley Cup Finals for the fifth straight time. Only one team in NHL history - the 1950's Montreal Canadiens, which featured such stars as Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau, Jacques Plante and Doug Harvey - had ever won five straight cups. Standing in the way of the "Drive For Five" were the young, but exceptionally talented Edmonton Oilers. With stars like Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Paul Coffey and Grant Fuhr the Oilers were on the brink of becoming hockey's next dynasty. The Oilers had been swept the year previous by the Islanders, and they had taken the lesson to heart. They handled the Islanders with relative ease, dispatching the Isles in just 5 games, and ending one of the greatest runs in NHL history - a run that had seen them win 19 straight playoffs series, the longest in professional sports history.

The team remained competitive over the remainder of the decade, but the Islanders that had been such a powerhouse over the first half of the 1980's began to break apart. Coach Al Arbour, Bob Nystrom and Mike Bossy all retired within a couple of years, and even the arrival of superstar Pat LaFontaine couldn't vault the aging Isles back into contention.

The Current New York Islanders

Today's New York Islanders club mirrors that of the expansion club so committed to building through the draft almost 40 years ago. When junior phenom John Tavares pulled on his New York Islanders jersey after the club selected him #1 overall in the 2009 entry draft there was a palpable feeling of excitement around the club for the first time in years. With young talent like Kyle Okposo, Josh Bailey, Rob Schremp and Matt Moulson surrounding Tavares the future looks bright for the Islanders. If today's team management can stay the course like Bill Torrey did so many years ago Isles' fans may once again see a day in the not-too-distant future when their club once again contends for the Stanley Cup.
