The irony is that the broadcaster, Cablevision, owns the Rangers.
The Ranger Franchise would probably be happy to see the Isles get Tavares. The Islander/Ranger rivalry is among the best in sports. Having both teams be very good is good for ratings.

There's a typo in there, get to work!
Buddy you have your own fans complaining about you in the business section. Along with your blatant disrespect to Chuck Wang.

Oh really? Nice way to discuss absolutes when confirming the future.

It's not so much that they don't deserve it, it's just unfair that they very well might get it. They've been a solid team for so long, they have one off season, and they get Tavares or Hedman. I never said anything was wrong with what the Flyers did, I just think that's what the Avalanche will do next season, regardless of if they have Hedman or Tavares in their lineup. Who knew a few key injuries to players like Joe Sakic and Statsny could cripple a team that would normally be in playoff contention.
That seems to be the case with most people who don't want Colorado getting the pick. "More deserving" seems to be the team who has been the worst for the longest. But the draft works on a season by season basis, and the Avs have been terrible this season. Injuries didn't help, but playoff contention would be as good as this team could have been, given the goaltending and coaching. The record tells me that we're as deserving as the Islanders or Lightning.

I'm just very high on Matt Duchene, and it was merely my opinion. He's my favourite guy in this years draft though, not to take anything away from Tavares or Hedman.

A good case could be made for the Avalanche to get Tavares. They certainly deserve something for this off year they've had. It's just my opinion that the Islanders deserve him more. Regardless of which team gets him, he's said he'll be happy to play there and I'm sure both teams would love to have him!
