Take a look at the Islanders' draft from this past year.
2012 Entry 4 1 Griffin Reinhart D Edmonton Oil Kings [WHL]
2012 Entry 34 2 Ville Pokka D Karpat [SM-liiga]
2012 Entry 65 3 Adam Pelech D Erie Otters [OHL]
2012 Entry 103 4 Loic Leduc D Cape Breton Screaming Eagles [QMJHL]
2012 Entry 125 5 Doyle Somerby D Kimball Union [Mass. H.S.]
2012 Entry 155 6 Jesse Graham D Niagara IceDogs [OHL]
2012 Entry 185 7 Jake Bischoff D Grand Rapids H.S. [Minn. H.S.]

Reinhardt, Pokka, Pelech and Graham all look solid, but there's little to no chance they all play as Islanders.
