NHL Draft Pick 2009

John Tavares is a top offensive scorer from the London Knights in the OHL.

Victor Hedman is a 6-foot-6 blueliner from Sweden.

i dont think either will help them enough they are the islanders lol. but if anything they need a real d man to help their overpriced goalie dipietro

They had one of those once upon a time, some kid named Chara, wonder how he ever developed???


In fairness to the Isles, Chara had done virtually nothing with the Isles in his four-plus seasons, especially on the offensive end. I know he’s valued greatly for his huge presence and defense but it’s his ability to score and set up plays that have made him into an elite defenseman.

As far as who they should pick - you gotta go with the scoring wiz, who’ll put more bums in seats!
