    this is form newyorkislanders.com

    The GM did shed some light on a potential sleeper selection with his first round pick. "We have our eye on a player that we hope, but don't expect, will be there at 16," Milbury said. "He might not be that high on every team's list, but we like him a lot. When I talk to my scouts, they get that twinkle in their eye talking about him. So we'll see."


    who do you think he's talking about?? the description sounds like it could be Wolski?

    Maybe Radulov or Korpikoski.

    Edit: Yeah, Schremp seemingly could fit the bill.

    The article also says that Milbury expects a quiet draft day. Either he's just ****ing with us or that kind of takes the wind out of Ovechkin to the Isles rumors.

    My guess would be either Wolski or Schremp.

    Sounds like Valabik to me.

    Someone that isnt high on everyones list, but would probably be gone by then anyway.

    Here are the only clues that I managed to find from Milbury's message: It's a "him"

    Seems like they could fit the bill. The Isles have really focused a lot of their scouting in Sweden/Finland in the past few years and it reflects in their picks. So I could definitely see it being Korpikoski.

    It's more of an educated guess really. It goes back to the 2000 draft(comments made by Waddell about the pick) and not taking Gaborik

    Frank Bonelli (Bonello?) of CSB said (in an interview) that he see's Boris Valabik as the guy that will go higher than most people expect.

    He also graded this draft year as a 'C'... (A, B, C, D, etc..)

    I got a feeling it will be Nokelainen and not Korpikoski... despite the fact Korpikoski has been the one jumping up the charts.

    Edit: Don't discount Johan Fransson or Carl Soderberg.

    Milbury also said he wants a skilled player who can compete.I don't think it's Valabik.He looks like a project pick.

    My guess is Korpikoski.

    I don't know who it is, but Schremp won't be available after 14. The Oilers will take him for sure if he's available. For sure.

    The key to what Mad Mike said was: "we hope, but don't expect, will be there at 16"

    That means it's probably not Korpikoski, Soderberg, Fransson or Smid.

    Chances are it's someone like Wolski, Radulov, maybe even Schremp.

    :lol:


    Because Yashin's eating so much of the budget over the next 4 yrs,it's tying MM's hands,forcing them to start developing and keeping their kids.

    That's why the isles passed on moving 19 yr old Bergenheim or 23 yr old Weinhandl at the trade deadline for Witt or Carney.
