Islanders open post-Tavares era looking for improvement

NEW YORK (AP) As they begin their first season without John Tavares, the New York Islanders are certain to be a different team. They believe they can be better, too.

There's new leadership with Lou Lamoriello running the front office and Stanley Cup-winning coach Barry Trotz behind the bench. And even without their former captain, the Islanders still have plenty of offense with Mathew Barzal, Josh Bailey and Anders Lee leading the way.

After guiding Washington to the championship in June, Trotz is being counted on to turn an Islanders team that has just one playoff series win since 1993 into a winner.
