Donovan made this yr's all-star team. I think he remains a top prospect, especially because of De Haan's shoulder injuries. Isles fans can't agree on where De Haan stands on the depth chart, after another season lost to a shoulder injury.

Early in Bridgeport's season, I thought he was their best d-man, looked more poised then anyone else.
Does picking up Hickey and Strait change the isles opinions on keeping Donovan/De Haan? No idea

I could see the smallish Ness, getting lost in numbers game the way Spurgen(sp) did.
