Dreams of Draft day




I had a disturbing dream last night. It was June 24th and Garth's turn to make his draft selection at #5 for the Isles...

Of the top prospects, Couturier and Huberdeau were still on the board. Garth began to speak.  "The New York Islanders select..."  And then he hesitated.  He looked around nervously and appeared confused. He seemed to have forgotten who he wanted to select, and who remained available.  He repeated himself. "Uhh, the New York Islanders select... of the Portland Winterhawks, Nino Niederreiter."  And that was it. The Islanders used their 2011 number 5 draft pick to RE-SELECT Nino.  The league appeared okay with this, as Ottawa went up next and selected Couturier.  I was aghast. We had completely and painfully wasted our opportunity.  And then I thought, "The comments on IPB are going to be absolutely insane."
