Scott Malkin and Jon Ledecky, the rookie principle owners of the NHL’s Islanders, are faced with big decisions about where their franchise will play its games in the near future.
This much seems clear: It won’t be Barclays Center.
That’s it. No other franchises in the NBA, NFL, MLB or otherwise have surpassed 25.
To fully appreciate the Red Wings’ run, consider the era in which it occurred.
Since the 1990-91 season, Detroit has gone through five head coaches, three general managers and three captains. A different goalie manned the net for three of the third four Stanley Cup championships during the streak, and thanks in part to the introduction of the salary cap in 2006, eight different players led the team in regular season scoring.

It’s possible all of professional sports, let alone the NHL, never again will bare Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale witness to the excellence required to sustain such success.
Or maybe the Red Wings, still armed with a strong prospects stable and a renowned front office, will merely start anew. The Metropolitan Division started off the night with a win in the Skills Challenge Relay.
