Anybody who thinks it takes Tavares, a true franchise player who is the face of the Islanders, and the player their franchise is building around, to get a first overall draft pick, and actually thinks thats decent value, needs to give their head a shake. If this was actually logical, and the Oilers did want Tavares, which they dont, there would be alot more going the Isles way then just the first overall pick. Reality needs to creep into the equation.
