Latest ESPN mock draft - Isles select Ryan Strome?

13
  1. EDM- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
  2. COL- Adam Larsson
  3. FLA- Sean Couturier
  4. NJD- Jonathan Huberdeau
  5. NYI- Ryan Strome

Michael Grabner is really good on the Penalty Kill (Warning Very Small Sample Size - Little Predictive Value)

2
  1. On the PK, Grabner leads the league in Corsi (Shot Differential) on the Penalty Kill (-40.74), leading #2 Patrick Elias by 5 whole shots
  2. Grabner is #2 in the league in Relative +/- on the PK, barely behind Ottawa's Milan Mitchalek
  3. Grabner is the 14th best in the league at drawing penalties on the penalty kill (#15 is actually Blake Comeau)
  4. Grabner does all this, but has not committed a penalty on the PK, and has nver caused the team to go to a 5 on 3.
  5. For more, see http://www.behindthenet.ca/test//nhl_statistics.php?s=30&f1=2010_s&f2=4v5&f7=20&f8=1&c=0+1+3+5+7+8+10+13+15+29+30+45+46+63# . In short, Michael Grabner is freaking awesome.

5 Things that make me want to throw up

+
  1. Crosby, Stamkos, St.Louis, and Sedin have outpointed our TEAM by 12 points
  2. How our owner is MIA when the fans need some hope of anything more than ever
  3. The Coach's Boston accent (and his inability to call a T/O)
  4. Islander commercials - both the dumb rip off ones and the generic msg ones
  5. Rick DiPietro
