Gallof: Despite Game 3 Loss, Islanders Exuding Confidence Beyond Their Years

When the Islanders began their rebuild in 2008, following a dismal season and a grim recognition of the severe lack of prospects and future pieces they had in their system, they did not need to look far for role models on how how to turn things around.
