It would be this option. There is no indication that the Isles would "kill" for Tavares. Hearsay (from Bowman to the announcers during TSN intermissions) even has the Isles leaning towards Hedman - of which there is no indication from any Islander officials.
Nor should there be if they play their cards right.
TB will have to think long and hard in this scenario, because unfortunately, the Islanders would be the one team that'd be completely satisified with either player.
If Colorado picks 2nd, TB may have a trading option.
Still, whoever picks 1st should and likely will at least ask the teams picking 2nd/3rd how much they'd want that #1 overall.
