Regular season

After starting the season with a 4-2-1 record, the Islanders fell into a slump from which they couldn't recover. They would win only 11 of their remaining 41 games, going 11-26-4. The Islanders would finish 12 points out of 8th place and miss the playoffs for the first time since 1992.

Near the end of the failed season, general manager Don Maloney decided that the core of players he had left alone for three seasons should be totally revamped, and he undertook a rebuilding project. He traded Pierre Turgeon and Vladimir Malakhov to Montreal for Kirk Muller and Mathieu Schneider, and Benoit Hogue was sent to Toronto for young goaltender Eric Fichaud. Additionally, Maloney allowed the team's leading scorer, Ray Ferraro, to depart as an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the season. Fans' displeasure at the GM for trading the popular Turgeon was magnified when Muller balked at joining a rebuilding team. He only played 45 games for the Islanders before being sent to the Maple Leafs.
