Islanders Draft and Future
If the Islanders are truly going to build through the draft, then there is no doubt they will be keeping this pick. As far as free agency goes, i wouldn't expect a lot of signings if the young players are going to get the ice time. Personally, i would go after 3 players: Huselius or Vrbata, for the top wing position. and Liles from Colorado for a top 4 defenceman. If Snow cannot get either of those players, then this draft is even more important for our future. The organization got a wake-up call last year with free agents turning them down, even though a lot of money was thrown their way. Keep the pick, draft well, and attempt to get those players. Then you have something to build on.
