I'd rather have Tavares or Hedman with the isles 1st then 2 later first rounders.The nyi 2nd is like a late first.Then they'll have the Leafs 2nd.They have a good chance of picking up a kid in the 2nd who slips down out of the 1st round.
As of Feb.10th, 2009 1:30 AM EST, the Entry Draft order (Top 5) is as follows:

1) NY Islanders
2) Atlanta Thrashers
3) Ottawa Senators
4) Tampa Bay Lightning
5) Toronto Msple Leafs

There is a very good chance that this order will change before the end if this season. The Maple Leafs could very well bypass TB, OTT, and ATL. There's only a 10-point difference between #2 and #5, so as everyone can see much can still happen.

I find it rather pointless for TOR to give up so many assets considering the fact tha they are ALSO a re-building team in almost as bad a shape as NYI.

Also don't forget about the Lottery! Any of the aforementioned teams can win it and vault into the #1 spot.

We'll have to wait and see what happens, although I hope that TOR can somehow gain 1 oe 2 more 1st rnd picks...
