And hell, even with the condition I could see Snow giving up 7-9 and keeping 2015 just because of the chance for McDavid. For as much as I love Zads, the Sabres may end up getting a better player with the Isles 1st. A guy like Sam Bennett at #11 (#10) looks like a pick just as good if not better then Zadorov's. This all depends on how the Isles finish. I expect them to either be the 8th seed or out of the postseason and a Potential high pick. I don't think there is any doubt that the Isles 2014 1st we get is going to be before pick 16.
It's simple, we already know what we got with the Minnesota pick, and it'd take a fair degree of luck to get a better prospect with the NYI pick. Does it matter if the Islanders pick is higher or not? No. I'd bet a whole lot on Sam Bennett not being available at #11.
