Eventhough I hope the Isles take Tavares because I'd like to see them grab a scorer, I won't be too disappointed if they coose Hedman instead. Snow realizes the importance of this pick and seems to be doing his homework so he makes the right choice for the team.

Show these guys the beach, show them NYC, and show them the North Shore. But for GOD'S SAKE, DON'T show them Uniondale or the Nassau Coliseum!

Draft Tavares! No excuses. Great scoring doesnt grow on trees. Great defense doesn't either but you can build a good enough defense to atleast make the playoffs like the islanders did with there D 2 years ago. Its very hard to find scoring. What if this kid is a franchise player? Not many of those are drafted each year. We need a Healtey, Lecalvier, Iginla, Getzlaf type that can change a playoff series for you. Im not ganna even mention crosby or ovechkin because players like that dont come along very often. Defense wins championchips in the playoffs, but you have to score goals to get there! Dont be stupid now draft the canadian born phenom and call it a day!

I cannot believe that an Option is Trade him for a established star.
Snow will probably draft Dave Chyzowski or Scott Scissons.

IF CHARLES AND GARTH CANT SEE THE NEED FOR A LEGIT SNIPER IN PLAYOFFS ALA CROSBY,OVECHKIN,MALKIN THEY MIGHT AS JUST SELL THE FRANCHISE RIGHT AFTER TRADE IF THEY DON'T PICK TAVERES. WE HAVENT HAD ONE SINCE BOSSY,, PICK TAVERES #1 AND TRADE WHATEVER YOU NEED TO GET TAMPA'S #2 AND GET HEDMAN. THAN YOUR REBUILDING IS OVER AND WE CAN START TRYING TO WIN CUPS REAL SOON

Yes, the team will be completely rebuilt just in time to bring that cup that we've all been waiting for to Kansas City.

Draft Taveras,our D when healthy is not that bad.We need goals and Bailey setting up Tavares sounds good to me.This also opens up the ice for Okposo,it's a nice 1-2 punch.

I say go for the trade...you get 2 of the top players in the draft. Better then one player; who is iffy to some in playing both ways.

Maybe they should trade their #1 pick and Okposo for Yashin

Blasts from the past ! Don't forget Scott LaChance, who was taken by the Isles before Peter Forsberg.
