With a 6-1 loss to the Penguins tonight the Islanders have clinched having the worst record in the NHL this season.

Unlike the 2000-01, the last season the Islanders were the dead-last team, there’s a good amount of hope for the future of this team (arena pending).

While the Islanders aren’t guaranteed the first pick, they are guaranteed the first or second.  Barring any abnormal news between now and the draft, John Tavares or Victor Hedman will most likely be wearing an Isles sweater at some point next season.
