It's a good point. We could very well be picking 30th and all of this talk is moot - we are the Isles ya know. The fact that we'll have 2 balls in the lottery (if it's the same system from 2005), I think we should be selecting in the top half of the draft and a strong chance of a top-10 pick. Hopefully our luck has changed with the news that our Isles will be staying physically on LI and not moving to Quebec City or Seattle... karma pays us back finally for all the crap we've had to endure.

Mantha seems to be skyrocketing up the charts.
