NY Islander fan since 1976 when I saw Denis score against LA in the Forum while I was in the US Navy. Who would have thought we would have been able to draft El Nino AND Kirill the Krazy!!! Let's restart the Drive for Five!!! Currently living in NW BC AKA Luongoland. Damn you, Mad Mike!!!

Trade Keith Yandle?

Yandle

Most Islander fans (and FYI I am one) are convinced Garth will move the #5 pick. Given the Boyle trade, a #1 D is his likely target. Maloney has said he'd like to get a top five pick. Let's assume Tavares, Okposo, Nielsen, Strome & Reinhart are untouchable and that it will take a player and a prospect in addition to the pick to get Yandle. What player and prospect would you choose?

Could be the solution to the PA Parenteau dilemma.

I've been dismissive of trading for an established player like Stastny, but Garth keeps talking about it, so who knows? My preference is for Larsson and I just have a feeling Garth will get him, but Dougie H is the more likely outcome. We'll see.

Mika Zibanejad, C – Djurgarden (Swe.) The Swedish kid with Finnish and Iranian roots is one of the hottest prospects around right now. He was first star of the game in a recent win over Frolunda and launched John Klingberg into the bench for good measure. The fact two dozen NHL scouts were in attendance means the youngster has great timing, too. Draft eligible in 2011.

A Potential Choice for the Second Pick

This guy is scoring at more than a point a game, is big, and is obviously someone who will have his linemate's back.

Been talking up Mika Zibanejad as a player to move back up into the first round to get after hopefully drafting Larsson. It will take maybe two years, but he has all the makings of a bonafide top two center. I knew about his elite level skill, but this video shows that he has some sandpaper to his game as well.

Be interesting to see if his game picks up now that he is over the injury.

He deserves the same shot Matt, RSH, PAP, and Grabs have had.

Mild Fischler Rebuke of Mario

But you should have seen him during the second intermission of the Carolina-Devils game. He was absolutely livid tearing into Lemieux and the Pens. When Daneyko tried to give Talbot some credit for answering the bell with Haley, Fischler lit into him as well and started talking about the Martin imbroglio when he went turtle. Great TV!
