16. New York Islanders

Previous: No. 18

Record: 25-20-10 (60 points)

The slow, strange rise under Doug Weight continues for the Islanders. It helps that New York has been really busy this month, playing seven games in the first 14 days. It also helps that Anders Lee (nine points) has been leading an improved offense in that stretch.
