The New York Islanders have a lot of talent that is just waiting to be shown. There are players on this team that are going to be playing in much bigger roles then they did in the past and will need to step up their game.
As the team gets better, we will start to see who belongs here and who doesn't. Which is why this season is so important.
Over the past few seasons, the Islanders have built their team through drafting. Many of these players are now in the NHL. It's time for them to show that they are good enough to be in the teams future plans.
As I said before, this is the season where players need to prove themselves. In this slideshow, I will show the five players who will have breakout seasons in 2011-12. These players could be the future of this team.
