Polls regarding Islanders 5th overall pick 2014.

This is a series of polls to help get a feel of what LHH fans expect and hope for on draft day 2014.

Big thank-you to jbotte for helping to set up this post, with the polls. (Any mistake with polls is mine.)

The first series of polls deals with what we expect to happen. The next series (Page Two) deals with what we hope to happen. Please READ CAREFULLY before voting. You are allowed to change your answers, so if you mis-read you can go back.

Here is the LINK for the survey.

Try to get your votes in by 4 p.m. Friday. It should freeze at 7 p.m., unless I misinterpreted which time zone I was selecting. If it freezes at 4 p.m., I will try to unfreeze it.

Please take the survey at the LINK before reading further into this post, unless you choose to skip the survey.

77 Yes

02 No

70 Dal Colle

05 Nylander

02 Ritchie

02 Ehlers

00 (Everyone else)

00 Other

If the Isles trade up, who would you like to see them try to target? (Pretend each is available for the same cost, which is substantial.... Say your least favorite of Lee or Pulock or Pokka, for instance-- plus the 5th overall.)

48 Top forward

23 Ekblad

06 Tie

Between Bennett and Draisaitl, who would you rather see Islanders trade up to land?
