My top-15 mock. First I've done.
I'd love this. I'd just switch 4 guys, Larsson and Hamilton and then McNeill and Bealieu

I'm wary about selecting a dman high, given how that has turned out in the past. And im not talking about islander history, i mean in the NHL. almost all of the top forwards have come out of the first round where most of the dmen come out 2-7. I'd rather go with one of Huberdeau, Landeskog or Couturier and then use the second round picks to select defenseman. Also, im in favor of trading up with those second round picks and using them to select a dman.

They can trade down 3-5 spots and still land Duncan Seimens, Murphy or Oleksiak or even further down and get Morrow.

I can see them trading with the Leafs...taking 25, 29 & 39 and a player.
Quality>Quantity at this point.
