With The 5th Overall Pick, Isles Select…..

June 27, 2014

Michael Dal Colle!!! According to Islanders General Manager Garth Snow via Art Staple, he does not intend on trading up in the draft so the top three of Ekblad, Reinhart, Bennet will not be falling into their laps. Draisaitl has moved up in my final rankings because it really does depend on the Calgary Flames. I know they really want Bennet, but I’m not sure who their second choice would be if Bennet…


Draft Preview # 2: Valentin Zykov

Zykov comes in at Number 2 so far because if the Islanders were to trade down, they would probably get another pick, (second rounder), and then draft a player like Zykov. An under-the-radar threat, Zykov is an already built winger who uses his big size to his advantage when taking punishment in front of the net and in the corners. In other words, Matt Moulson, only bigger. Maybe Todd Bertuzzi?…
