Bob Nystrom is "Mr. Islander."  Maybe the most beloved player in Islanders history, he scored the Cup winning goal in overtime of game six of the 1980 Stanley Cup Finals - the first of four straight Cups for the Islanders.  His son Eric has inherited the old man's grit and leadership, and will bring that to Minnesota with the Wild this season.
