Ehhhh Billy. No one knows about Tavares yet. You can't say that he is going to be like Sid... but you also cannot say that he ISN'T going to be like Sid.

One thing is for sure, every scout, GM, and coach in the NHL and elsewhere think he can surely score goals on the professional level and put some butts in the crowd.

People jump the gun fast on Guerin's comments. Only thing he really said was that Tavares isn't a Crosby-implying that he won't be a difference maker soon for the team if picked.

He's entitled to his opinion. Doesn't make it true or false. Just an opinion.

The Islanders are the worst team in the National Hockey League and THN ranks their prospects amongst the worst of all NHL teams. They are last in attendace. And they may be forced to move to Kansas City.

Nothing like a team that gives up. And that team is your New York Islanders. They get whipped by The Hurricanes 9-0. Then tonight the Penguins roll over them. The Isles are sissies! And The Wrecker, don't even go there about his hair-do. Ouch! how do you spell hairspray needed.

We're #30! We're #30! Hurrah! Hurrah!

At least we'll get Tavares or Hedman now drafting #1 or #2...unless the pick gets traded. But what are the odds someone will sucker us & steal the pick away? I mean the last time a high draft pick like that was traded away was way back in 2001 when Ottawa received the #2 overall pick, plus a throw-in defenseman,(Zdeno Chara), in return for Alexei Yashin. Come to think of it, the team that got Alexei was...oooohhhh. Riiiiight.

Hockey's future says "Kyle Okposo, Blake Comeau, Josh Bailey, and Robin Figren all have top-six upside. They are ranked poorly because of very few defenseman and goaltenders...I am assuming this will be taken care of in this years draft. Isles can't be forced to move to KC unless Wang decides that the lighthouse aint gonna happen.
