Alex's Final Draft Thoughts

The stage is set. Thousands donning Orange and Blue will gather tomorrow at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum to watch what is sure to be the biggest draft in quite some time for the New York Islanders. It is a draft that will be looked back on for years to come as a turning point, for better or for worse, in the history of the franchise. It is one of the organization's only chances to acquire a true game-changer considering the team's lack of luck in free agency.

So, as both an observer and a fan, I hope the Islanders make the smart choice tommorrow night. There are times for risks and going with hunches, but this is not one of them. Take the guy who has been the consensus number one for years...not the guy who just emerged on the scene. Take the guy who every GM north of border is coveting. Take the guy who has broken records, changed rules, and won international titles. Take John Tavares.
