Islander fan (occasionaly) thinking about next year already (aquired habit). Players who have legitimate shot to make the team as rookies next year: Ryan Strome, Kirill Kabanov, Kirill Petrov, Calvin de Haan, and Matt Donovan. Plus, they could possibly send Nino Niederreiter back to Jrs. this year and bring him up next year. They won't all make it, of course, but the ones that do will be surrounded by guys that are pretty young themselves. So my questions to the HoH board are these: What was the most rookies on a good team? "Good" is open to interpretation, but it at least means playoffs. What were the best young teams, teams that didn't have very much of the 'veteran leadership' we always hear so much about?
