What should the Islanders do with this upcoming draft?

So what should the islanders do with their first picks of the draft?

1st round and second round?

playmaking center -high scoring winger-two way forward?

two way defenseman?

I'd have to go with a cornerstone defenseman-type-(unless they win the lottery and get Nail Yakupov)

I think they should trade down and take Griffin Reinhart he reminds of the Kenny Johnson type hes a big two-way defenceman you can do it all!

heres a list from hockeyprospects.com to inspire some ideas;
