Who do the Isles draft at five?

Huberdeau jumps into the four slot, and Couturier is available...

Do the Islanders take the big two-way centre, or the big two-way defenseman in Dougie Hamilton?

Or perhaps someone else?

Discuss...

I don't think the Isles will draft at #5. I like Hamilton a lot though.

Trade the pick for an established player.

You should probably make this a poll, and if Couturier is available at 5 I don't think there is anyway Garth passes up on him.

I really think we either move up or move down. I do not think we pick @ 5.

I would love to get Larsson but Devils will take him. That is the guy the isles might have been targeting. Now Hamilton may be the next guy but a trade down will be the choice. We select someone for Dougie H. and some add ons.

Just a thought...

Huberdeau or Hamilton. If Bailey is traded, then Huberdeau. If Bailey stays, Hamilton.

The pick by itself might get you Tanguay. The pick + Grabner might get you Iginla. Still want to trade the pick?

This is bang on.

Just listening to all the radio bits and internet chatter on this draft and feel like we're in excellent shape. Heck, even Ottawa is in excellent shape. After six, there is a drop-off...but even then a Hamilton or Murphy is available. Gabriel Landeskog might also be available at five...here's why:

Bryan Murray is being intervied right now on Ottawa radio and was saying that he doesn't expect the number one or number two draft picks to be in play as far as trades go. RNH and Larsson should go here.

The number three spot could be in play according to Murray, and this makes sense beyond just Ottawa's interest in Landeskog. No less than Couturier, Huberdeau, and Strome are all much, much better offensive players than Landeskog. Also, if Landeskog at three is a possibility for a trade as Murray suggested, that means that scouts feel as though someone is a better choice at three.

I think that we may see Huberdeau climb as high as three, and if Strome continues to show his stuff in the playoffs, he could pull a Ryan Johansen...maybe someone else could speak to this, but shouldn't Strome be playing in the under 18 tourney this summer? That could be a huge boost...but I think only one of Huberdeau and Strome climbs any more.

Couturier isn't as bad as some think. A TSN survey of 10 scouts had Couturier listed solidly in the top five, and three scouts had him in the top three. The Devils should jump all over this guy. They may take Landeskog, leaving the Isles with Couturier.

Yep, the Isles will go for the NHL ready player...either Landeskog or Couturier is what I am thinking now.


1. RNH
2. Larsson
3. Huberdeau/Strome
4.Couturier
5. Landeskog
6. Strome/Huberdeau

I want either Landeskog or Larsson, and since neither will be there at the 5 spot..

Trade #5 and Bailey for #2. Done

Vokoun won't be returning to the Panthers. Can they use a goalie propect?
How about the #5 pick and either Poulin or Anders Nilsson for the #3 pick?

Does Colorado do this deal for their pick?

Nabokov won't report to a team that's rebuilding. He wants to win a cup.

With Rickety signed till the end of days, they probably shouldn't be trading goalie prospects now.

The more I think about it the more I think it might be coulter for me.

We want hockey players on our team. All this guys has done is play, not a primadona like showsby, malkin, ovechkin.

He goes and plays without issues. He kind of reminds me of JT, just bigger.

I go with Landskog, Larsson, Hamilton, Murphy, Huber...it will be one of these. Maybe Strome on a late push.

What a toss up this draft will be...WOW!

I would suspect that neither team does it.

The Islanders don't do it in case one of Poulin or Nilsson doesn't pan out. These are the top two goalie prospects in the system now, and both look like they could develop into a number one goalie.

Florida and Colorado don't do it either, and for the same reason- you never know.

These weren't number two or number three overall picks, and when making a trade like this (with unknows) you can't really add a few together to move up and select an Adam Larsson- he's more of a known quantity.
