Just as long as the Edmonton Spoilers don't win it again this year. I hope the Islanders or the Leafs move up to number 1.

Me too! Well, I hope the Isles move up to number 1! It is a shame that the only way the Isles get talent is through the draft.

The Oilers are going to be deadly. RNH, Hall, Eberle and now Yakupov...

Gotta go defense (unless Snow drugs Suter and gets him to sign on LI), so Dumba works for me.

But Josh, we all know Snow is going to trade 4th overall for 7th overall (Minnesota) and 37th Overall

I have changed my mind I want them to get Filip Forsberg...A real winger that can play the wing and is big..

Every year the Isles have a better chance of obtaining the #1 overall pick than making the playoffs. :lol:

You're right too, the Pens are done. :lol: Talk about a PERFECT example of having a STELLAR regular season and completely CHOKING in the playoffs.

It's all fun and games about the Isles. I feel bad for die hard fans such as you, who LOVE the team and really want them to win so badly! I know your pain about the losing, it really sucks. I think the Isles are onto something, they finished pretty strong this year. They get a couple more good players and they'll be competitive. But then it's only a matter of time before people saying the Isles tanked to get good. How lame! -_-

From the Oilers' standpoint it was a pretty good draft. Not only did we get Yakupov, but we also got Danil Zharkov and Joey Laleggia.

From the latter you may ask "who?". Well the guy racked 38 points in 43 games in the WCHA, AS A ROOKIE.
