Pick analysis: Last year, the Islanders selected D-men with all of their seven picks, including No. 4 overall pick Griffin Reinhart, who they expect to eventually play major minutes. Wennberg, who is one of the best two-way forwards in this draft, has size, skill, top skating ability and excellent defensive awareness. A shutdown center is just what the Islanders need to go along with their high-flying forward core.
It's earlier than he's ranked thus far, but Wennberg has very good hockey sense and potential. He would be a solid pick in that range.
We need a winger who can snipe in te worst way(Shinkurak) and/or a highly potential dman....imo
The only way I would pick a center is if Mackinnon or Barkov are on the Board and Jones and Drouin were gone...
or if a center was clearly BPA then I couldnt argue
