Who knows? What's more likely is that TB wants Hedman. So the price for the #2 pick almost certainly depends upon who the Isles pick. Not knowing that, there's no basis for any deal.

If NYI pick Hedman, TB may lower their price to #7 and Schenn. If the Isles pick Tavares, it would take a ridiculous price to make TB trade #2. If the Isles pick Hedman the the Leafs have to compete with every other team that wants Tavares or Duchene (assuming Colorado wants Duchene at #3).

Given my info, I'm ambivalent as an Isles fan between Tavares and Hedman... But as a draft-watcher, I hope the Isles pick Hedman because that could produce an extremely entertaining draft.

Lock it up: there will be no deal for the #2 pick until the Isles announce their intentions on #1 (either by making the pick, or signing the player before the draft). I will donate $100 to HF if I'm wrong.

Cheers,
