TL;DR

Islanders almost traded ALL of their picks for the 2nd overall pick

I don't get what the problem is. It says if Nail dropped to 2 that would be the trade. That's actually probably not even enough to move up from 4 to 1 in a draft like this. The value of picks drops drastically as you move down through the first round.

I wonder what draft they offered all of their picks to the Blues was. It has to be either 2006(1st overall), or 2008(4th overall with the possibility of either Pietrangelo or Doughty being available). More than likely it was 06. The hype surrounding Erik Johnson was unreal which is I guess why the Blues turned it down.

While I could see the argument they might be worse off 5 years from now I don't get how it would make much difference to this season. Infact they might be better with Nail Yakupov making 1M then Jay Pandolfo being resigned.

Milbury said he almost did it, but the last draft he was our GM was 2005. 2006 would make sense but Milbury stepped down in March of that year

OK, in that case it's a little less shocking.

This made me wonder, what's the fewest number of picks any team has made in a full draft?

If you count the year St Louis forfeiting picking in the draft(83) as a protest for the league not letting them sell the team to somebody who wanted to move them to Saskatoon, 0

This is so overblown. Isles are near their roster limit with all the picks they've stockpiled over the last four years. 80% of picks beyond the third round are never going to sniff the NHL. It's not overly ridiculous and wouldn't have had any long term impact on the Islanders.

And good for Columbus for having the conviction to get the player they badly wanted.

You've got to question the sense that comes behind this offer not being accepted. If the Isles first was something like the 10th then it makes sense, but you'd only have moved down two spots for that entire bounty. It even mentions the 30th overall too, crazy by Howson.

To have Tavares + Yakupov, I think that would've been worth it from NYI's end.

The odds of a 2nd/3rd/4th liner playing in the NHL aren't that high.

I'm starting to believe that this story is true based on the number of reliable sources saying it is but only if it involved them trading for Yakupov rather than Murray of course.

The funnier thing is that instead, they went out and draft 7 tall dmen so they know what their priorities are lol but they'd rather have Yakupov than the 7 big dmen. Although I shouldn't really laugh, all my team's draft picks were Canadian wingers or centres who could play the wing from the WHL/OHL and they were all below 5'11 and undersized except one who had a growth spurt.

The dumb franchise was saved by an even dumber franchise from making this trade.

No wonder Nash is being dangled for 3 1sts, 2 top two line players, top prospect, and a bag of potatoes

really, this is the worst trade of all time? the isles don't need more average prospects, yakupov is the 2 best prospect since the lock out and the isles realized that
