some people on that thread are just crazy for saying the Islanders and Phoenix were losers.
Phoenix got Boedker and Tikhonov in round 1 and then gave up close to nothing to get a #1 center in Jokinen.
NYI did amazingly well, especially in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. They could have done better than Bailey in round 1, but more than made up for it by getting Trivino, Ness and Hamonic in round 2 and Toews, Niemi and Petrov in round 3. I'm not an Islanders fan, but I feel they did well.
Those are my two biggest winners of the draft actually, Phoenix and NYI. I think the Rangers did well too and so did teams like Nashville(Wilson,Pichard,Josi) and LA(Doughty,Teubert,Voinov).
