The New York Islanders just had their most successful season in nearly 30 years, so what can they do to get closer to winning another Stanley Cup?
All they have done since is go from being the absolute worst defensive team in the league to one of the best, compile the seventh best record in the league over the past two regular seasons, and have more postseason success than the organization had experienced in nearly three decades. Just for some perspective on how far they have come… In the first two years of the Lamoriello-Trotz duo the Islanders have already won three playoff series and 14 total playoff games.
The Post’s Mollie Walker looks at what questions the Islanders are facing this offseason: Goaltending After the Islanders let Robin Lehner walk following the 2018-19 season, they signed Semyon Varlamov as a free agent to a four-year, $20 million deal in July 2019. Thomas Greiss, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent next season, has somewhat been bumped by Varlamov as the No. goalie this postseason after seeing rather equal time during the regular season.
