Anyhow, if you say they drafted Heatley (whom was the guy Milbury said he had #2 in an interview some time ago that I read), you could have a top line of Bertuzzi/Heatley/Palffy (Heatley was a centre in the NCAA).
Interesting, so if you take away Milbury's 2 major draft day deals, you could add
Jokinen Spezza Heatley to the list and all you would remove would be Dipietro.
Just as side note, this wasn't even a result of Salary dumps. That roster listed above would be cheaper than the roster of the current Islanders.
It's hard to believe Milbury still has a job. Especially taking into consideration the Jokinen, Spezza, Heatley part.
