It's not SUPPOSED to be like that, kids are usually supposed to be in some sort of minor league system, developing their games while they finish maturing physically.

There is plenty of time for guys like Nino, Strome and De Haan to make an impact for the Islanders.
I completely understand.. I didn't just hating on the picks because some of the guys drafted after our guys are making an impact in the NHL. The picks I dislike are ones I disagreed with immediately and thought it was an obvious mistake at the time. I hope nothing more than for our kids to develop into solid players.
