1. The pick was made over a month ago, and prospect rankings become a lot clearer as fans of teams eliminated from the playoffs start to obsess over who they want in the next draft.
2. I'm picking 20th in this draft when the Islanders pick 15th. If the board fell the way it did and I had the 15th, I'd probably want Domi over Erne and Lazar.
3. Even if we end up with Erne, he fits a massive need in our organization: a strong, intimidating power forward with top-line potential to protect Tavares and help him offensively.
Fair enough, I knew it seemed a little off. That being said how do you rate the forwards. Although Erne is big, projecting him to be the future on Tavares' wing is pre mature for any prospect not named Mac or Drouin IMO.
Nino might not be the most physical but is a big presence with gifted hands. Lee is another kid in the pipelines that fits the same style of Erne and is further along.
I think you have to put Domi, Lazar and Bailey all over Erne.
With the 201st pick in the draft, the New York Islanders are proud to select, from the Spokane Chiefs of the Western Hockey League, defenseman Brenden Kichton.
Brenden, a fifth round pick of the Islanders in the 2011 draft, chose to reenter the draft this year, believing he'd go higher this time around. We still think Kichton is an intriguing prospect and don't mind using a seventh round pick to keep him under the umbrella of the Islanders organization.
