The New York Islanders catch a lot of flak for a rebuild that seemingly never ends, but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.
It starts with a young core led by superstar John Tavares. That group was augmented with key veterans in what was a busy summer for the team. There's even more help on the way, as the Islanders boast a deep and capable prospect group that was bolstered by the addition of No. 5 overall pick Michael Dal Colle in June.
The following slideshow ranks the team's 10 best Calder-eligible prospects (so don't look for players like Ryan Strome, whose eligibility has come and gone) and provides capsule scouting reports. Prospects are primarily ranked based on their potential NHL ceiling, but the amount of risk involved in that projection is also a significant factor in this list.
