You're crazy if you think prospects would actually develop into quality NHLers. LA just traded away everything for Mike Richards and Jeff Carter who single handedly lead them to a predictable cup win. Do it Murray! I don't care if we scored more goals than 90% of the league and our defense is crap and aging, sell it all 4 FWRDZ!"
More like:

June 2011: Wow, that was an awful, awful season, maybe it's time to build around an already talented core with solid drafting!

June 2012: Wow, we just went 7 games with the best team in the east and have a chance to get one of the best forwards in the league while still keeping our 1st pick and many other talented prospects!

Last years draft picks are this years prospects. If we didn't have Noesen, Zibanejad or Puempel, I don't think anyone would be talking about punting our pick this year or trading a prospect.

We could skip this draft entirely and still be top 10 in the league in terms of prospects...

Is there anyone more annoying than Dreger? He's like a verified version of Eklund but on TV.

Just because he reports a rumour and it doesn't end up happening doesn't mean his rumour was false...

Oh God. Just take Yakupov, Edmonton. If they go with Murray and Columbus passes on him because of the Russian factor, we will see Yakupov in our division.

Yeah people act like if we traded Zibanejad and one other prospect we'd be giving up the farm. We're pretty deep prospect wise I wouldn't mind making a trade for top level player.

on NHL.com and the Press Room channel there's a LIVE stream for the draft hosted by Islanders TV I believe.

Agreed, even if we traded Zibby we still have Stone and Silfv and 2 of our 3 1st round picks from last years draft.

This is true. Though, it'll be interesting to see what Edmonton, Buffalo and Tampa are able to do this weekend.

We're in a phase right now where continuing to stockpile and draft well will be pay off. We can add players like Michalek or Hjalmarsson and a couple UFAs without abandoning the plan from last season and address actual pressing needs rather than fulfill fantasies. Obviously, all these prospects won't make the NHL or this team, but its still too early in the evaluation and development stages to throw a bunch of them in a trade for big money players with question marks. Many of our needs can be filled from within in the near future, at least IMO.

This is what the LA kings did btw.

After all this Rick Nash drama, it almost didn't feel like today was draft day.

Sharks and Canucks apparently have made a deal... they couldn't have waited 15 minutes and done it on prime-time TV?

If it involves a 1st round pick in tonights draft they should have waited, otherwise I guess it's alright.

I can't believe the rumours that Edmonton is going to take Murray. That would be insanity.

One of them is a respected hockey insider who breaks more trades than any other hockey journalist. The other is an outright fraud who manufactures trades out of thin air. Dreger is so much more credible than Eklund that they should never be mentioned in the same sentence.

Forget about trades. We need all our collective will power to hope for Yakupov, Murray, Galy and Forsberg in the top four so the Leafs are shut out of their top tier forward.

Edmonton better take Yakupov.
