Bring your wall alive with one of the greatest sports dynasties of a generation! Talk about a textbook job of building a franchise from the ground up - GM Bill Torrey and coach Al Arbour started from scratch in 1972, built a core of young stars through the draft and smart trades, and ensured everyone was on the same page as they went from basement-dwellers, to playoff-bound, to championship-contenders, to Stanley Cup Champions by 1980. And it was no one-hit wonder - once they gelled, they never stopped, winning four straight Stanley Cups until finally being supplanted by another similarly-built young dynasty, the Edmonton Oilers. This amazing poster, published on the 30th anniversary of that fourth championship, celebrates that legendary era with a spectacular design for your wall and your collection. Surrounding the Islanders team logo, and bordered by photos of each of the four official team Stanley Cup championship rings, are profile renderings of every player who skated for the champion Islanders during those Stanley Cup runs. All 32 players, plus coach Al Arbour, are here: Bob Nystrom, Denis Potvin, Bryan Trottier, Mike Bossy, Bill Smith, Clark Gillies, John Tonelli, Butch Goring, Bob Bourne, Ken Morrow, Gord Lane, Duane Sutter, Dave Langevin, Stefan Persson, Wayne Merrick, Anders Kallur, Roland Melanson, Mike McEwen, Bill Carroll, Greg Gilbert, Tomas Jonsson, Jean Potvin, Garry Howatt, Bob Lorimer, Lorne Henning, Brent Sutter, Hector Marini, Steve Tambellini, Alex McKendry, Mats Hallin, Paul Boutilier and Glenn "Chico" Resch. Whether you remember those glory days at the Nassau Coliseum, are a long-time fan of Long Island's great NHL franchise, or are simply a lover of hockey history, this one's for you!
