We have no idea what's going on behind the scenes. For all we know JT already told them what he'll do.

I was hoping they traded one of the picks to get a goalie, but given that Wahlstrom and Dobson were available I'm not surprised they took them.

I understand where you are coming from. We've been kicked in the teeth for years, but Snow's not running the show anymore. Give it some time.

Substitute "Milbury" for "Snow" in the bold above, and that was my thinking a decade or so ago.

I mean no one thought they would be there so , I get that and makes sense. But if the we want to win NOW with JT in the fold making those picks concerns me that JT is totally undecided.

Those choices being there makes the picks that much better.

It will be interesting to see what’s done with the second rounders.

I'm still not worried about JT. Isles cannot do much more to show JT than are serious.

I wanted trades but you can't complain about the outcome. Lou is stacked with trading chips and now has all summer to build his team. Can't use the "heard it before" line with this team. Pretty sure Lou has earned the right to at least get a chance No?

Shhhh! Don't upset Schwein!

Don’t think you can today. Bouchard, Wahlstrom and Dobson. My favourite teams (frank)ing killed this draft.

Elliotte Freidman... said Lou was going to use one of the picks and trade the other. But when the two kids were available, he had to take them.

Oh yeah Friedman? Who was he going to trade one of those picks for? Guy doesn't know crap

I'm Mr. trade but it seems really tough to knock Lou making these picks. Sounds like two possible gems.

NYI GM Lou Lamoriello said they tried using one of their first-rounders to trade for a roster-player now, but is understandably happy with Wahlstrom/Dobson. Tried asking if it was Grubauer, which was a predictable failure

Undecided now doesn’t mean he won’t sign with the Islanders ultimately. Just gives me an uneasy feeling. That said I think he still signs with us and if not (frank) him.

I JT doesn’t sign then you should totally trade Dobson and Lee to the Oil for Nuge and Klefbom.

I mean obviously you can but I think most are happy. Plus don't you think the players just drafted are more valuable then the picks themselves? How do you know what Lou is going to do next? He has 3 months

I think this player was projected to the Isles at 12 on many boards?
