According to the Toronto's Fan 590's Primetime Sports on Wednesday night, the Islanders are leaning towards Hedman to fill their biggest need at the moment regardless of what prospect creates the most media "buzz". They see him as a Chris Pronger type that will have the impact of a #1 dman for more than a decade. I believe the conversion was between Bob McCowen, Jim Kelley and Nik Kyprios but will try to check later today.

The darkhorse bet they mentioned is that Burke tries to make a huge impact deal on draft day and will try to pursuade which ever team is picking #1 or #2 to deal that for the Leafs pick and one of Kubina or Kaberle. Burke has a history of making grandious trades at his first draft with a new organization.

My humble opinion is that if TB wins the lottery, it will be Tavares and they will recoup allot of assets when Vinnie is moved out later that day either to Montreal, Philadelphia or the Rangers. Hedman will then go #2 to whoever has that pick.

But that and $2, will get you an overpriced cup of coffee.
