Look at the standings. It's not inconceivable Islanders finish in bottom ten and then have choice to move pick to 2015. I'm assuming everybody here would prefer that, one more shot at McDavid. But would the Islanders be cocky enough to think they'll be better the following year? Remember, all non-playoff teams are in the lottery. I have one question. Do the NYI Islanders make their election before the lottery winner is picked this year or after. Ie. could they wait and see if they won lottery and then keep the pick? This is one of the more interesting things in this horrid season -- where that pick ends up.
