This week it's Bryan Trottier. These are the rookie and sophmore Trottier cards (75-76 and 76-77). Trottier and the Islanders reached the playoffs in his first year as an Islander. The years prior to this were post expansion bottom feeding for the Isles. Trottier was drafted 22nd overall in 1974 by the Isles, and Clarke Gilles was drafted 4th! For all you history buffs, Denis Potvin was drafted 1st overall by the Isles in 1973, and King Richard Brodeur was drafted by New York 97th overall in 1972. The exceptional draft picks in these years solidified a lineup that would soon become a dynasty.
