Lucic Krejci Seguin
Marchand Bergeron Vanek
Peverley Kelly Horton
Paille Campbell Thornton

Chara Karlsson
Seidenberg Boychuk
Gardiner Hamilton
McQuaid

Price
Rask

It was between Kessel/Vanek and Myers/Gardiner. Always been a big Vanek fan and I think hed fit in perfectly with Bergeron. I also think Gardiner is a stud, so had to take him. Plus I wanted Karlsson on the right side with Chara before anything else so that meant I couldnt have another one in Myers (big believer in that...plus a young player playing the off side doesnt always mix)...which meant again that I needed Gardiner.

First, nobody specified if this was for this coming year or if it was for a while into the future. If it is for this year, then Nabakov is capable and McD is a HUGE upgrade in a glaring hole that we have not been able to fill in a while. It sets our whole defense up where Streit can focus on puck-moving and being a solid number 2. Hamonic and Viz can play the 2nd pairing where they belong, and AMac doesn't need to play over his head.

Second, if it's for the future, the Isles have goalie prospects that could end up being decent to good goaltenders in the NHL. My theory was to take the chance on them as finding a true number 1 d-man is much harder to come across, IMO. Looking at the successful teams in the league, including the cup winners, many have done it with average goaltending. A weak defense though? Good luck.

Third, I have NO idea what the Islanders history has to do with who I would pick moving forward? Am I picking players to play from 2004-2011? We have had a hole in goaltending since DP has been chronically injured. That's why we've stockpiled that position and have two promising youngsters and brought in Nabby.

Granted, it was a tough choice. The toughest of the 4. I would be pretty damn happy with either and could go back and forth.

Kesler/O'Reilly lines would get all the hard matchups (the es toi for the lines would probably be about equal for all 4).

Rather than repeating myself I'll just nod and move along since lundqvist would help you this year and for the next decade more than mcD would but hey that's my opinion.

Fair enough. To each his own. It's not like I said it wouldn't be close. I just go for D over goalies. Goaltenders are fickle. Getting a solid #1 d-man for the next twenty years keeps you contending. Just a speculation off the top of my head, but teams with just an elite #1 d-men are stronger than teams with just an elite #1 goalie. I think the Blues are good example. Petro is their future. Halak is awesome and Elliott played great, but many speculated that it was because of the system and the strength of the defense.

Took Doughty, Ekman-Larsson, Benn & Thornton. Was hard not to take Kopitar but Thornton is arguably as good and Doughty was a much better option than any SJ defensemen.

Benn - Getzlaf - Perry
Ryan - Thornton - Selanne
Winnik - Koivu - S-Pelley
Beleskey - Bonino - Palmieri
Staubitz

Beauchemin - Doughty
E-Larsson - Fowler
Allen - Lydman/Sbisa

I might opt for Duchene on 2nd line (faith in a bounceback) instead of Booth, or move Kesler to line 3 and nab Stastny.
I have a feeling that Eberle would excel with the sedins but otherwise yes

Better idea Pronger isn't retired yet so put Pronger in instead of Letang then put Crosby or Malkin instead of Giroux

Kesler/O'Reilly lines would get all the hard matchups (the es toi for the lines would probably be about equal for all 4).
Your bottom 2 lines are better than your top 2.. and no, I don't see Cervenka, Baertschi and Hudler getting the same amount of ice time as Hall, O'Reilly and Kesler unless your team is very poorly managed.

I sense a theme.
I'd take OEL over Yandle unless it's just for one year. Even then I probably would, though.

Where's Larsen?

And don't get me wrong, I'd love Kopitar, but I'd rather take Getzlaf and Doughty over Kopitar and Sbisa.
