1974: Clark Gillies
1975: *Pat Price
1976: *Alex McKendry
1977: Mike Bossy
1978: *Steve Tambelinni
1979: Duane Sutter
1980: Brent Sutter
1981: *Paul Boutilier
1982: Patrick Flatley
1983: Pat LaFontaine
1983: *Gerald Diduck
1984: *Duncan MacPheason

1985: Derek King
1986: Tom Fitzgerald
1987: *Dean Chynoweth
1988: *Kevin Chevyldayoff

1990: *Scott Scissons
1991: *Scott LaChance
1992: Darius Kasparaitis
1993: *Todd Bertuzzi
1994: *Brett Lindros
1995: Wade Redden
1996: *J.P. Dumont
1997: *Roberto Luongo
1998: *Mike Rupp
1999: *Tim Connolly
1999: *Taylor Pyatt
1999: *Branislav Mezei
1999: *Kristian Kudroc
2000: *Rick DiPietro
2000: *Raffi Torres
2002: *Sean Bergenheim
2003: *Robert Nilsson
2004: *Paterri Nokelainen
2005: *Ryan O'Marra
2006: Kyle Okposo
2008: Josh Bailey
2009: John Tavares
2009: **Calvin de Haan
2010: Nino Niederreiter
2011: Ryan Strome

* denotes bust or very little impact on our team.

Tom Fitzgeral avoids asterisk on the strength of 1992-93

Wade Redden avoids asterisk because he was traded for Bryan Berard

** denotes that the player is still young enough to prove a point because he's played too few games.

Okposo, Bailey, and Niederreiter have a reasonable chance of busting.

With 45 picks, the Islanders have:

13 successes (Some of them generous)

27 failures

4 question marks in Bailey, Okposo, Neiderreiter and Strome

1 Who has played too few games to tell (de Haan)

.... so why do we get excited about the draft?
