Being a Rangers fan, I think the Icelanders will follow their pathetic history since the 1990's and trade this pick for a couple of expensive broken down mid-level players or some lower level picks which they can squander. As a hockey fan, I hope the Icelanders keep the pick and put a competitive team on the ice, so that when we beat them, it will feel like winning instead of just some pathetic beatdown of a loser.

How many games did the Isles lose by one goal this year?

Take Hedman
Wrong. Taking Hedman would be a bad mistake. He has more in common with Kenny Jonsson than Pronger
