When working on a sportsbook for the New York Islanders, there are several factors to consider. The most notable thing that literally looms around the team is the arena they play in. The Barclay’s Center is very clearly a temporary home for the Islanders, and one their players haven’t taken to kindly. The Islanders have shown maturity to deal with the change but aren’t playing the kind of hockey at home required to compete for a Stanley Cup, yet anyway. Make no mistake, though, soon they’ll be amon the league’s best.
Led by captain John Tavares, the Islanders can be one of the most dangerous teams in the league with Johnny Boychuck capable of contributing from the blue line. And you know that Tavares will hound the net every chance he gets. The Islanders have been patient and have built a team around Tavares the right way which is starting to pay big dividends for the four-time-Stanley-Cup-winning franchise.
