Three points from picking 4th (or better)


The worst thing that can happen to a rebuilding team is to have an overachieving year when you get started. The Islanders have been overachieving all year--credit to Scott Gordon and the young players like Okposo and Bailey. But you want them to add another premier player and to do that you need to draft high. Who knows, you could even move up. I think the recent losses have showed that the Islanders are really not a playoff team yet, as much as that pains me. But with another year, another great young player, and Hamonic and de Haan in the lineup, 2010-2011 is the year the Isles really make their move.
