Lots of names, lots of fits, lots of drama as to how things play out. I figure it'll be even more interesting when we're drafting #30 overall next year.
It does have a different feel to it. I'll admit, I liked having an idea of who the Isles would be drafting because then I was able to do extensive research on that select group. This is totally different; one day I have my mind set on player "X", and then someone brings up a guy that I have never even heard of and all of the sudden player "Y" is my guy. But hey, I'll take Islanders hockey in May over everything.
