Another Possibility for the Second Pick

The player picked most in the Mock Drafts by the Islanders with the 26th pick is Calvin de Haan. This cannot be ignored. I still say they will go after Erixon, but de Haan is a close second. If picked, the Islanders will be improving the quality of prospects, and more secifically, the defensive side.

NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards: "Calvin shows a lot of patience and poise for a young defenseman. He has high-end puck skill and passing ability. He has a very good shot, hard and accurate, and a very good ability to get the puck through traffic to the net. He sees the ice very well and moves the puck through traffic. His skating is excellent, mobility, agility and speed. His biggest asset is his hockey sense. He makes very few mistakes."

Calvin de Haan is being compared to Thomas Kaberle.
