I really think the Isles are hoping for a terrible season and are banking on this years draft to help supply them with solid young talent. There is no coincidence that their top 4 forwards are UFAs at the end of the season and for sure will be shipped out as rentals for youth and picks come the deadline.
Yeah, giving up O'Marra, Nilsson and 2007 first round pick (Alex Plante) in that deal for Smyth was really dumb IMHO.
