Islanders Draft Review

Islanders Draft Review

“Mad” Mike Milbury has done it again… Milbury has one again rolled the dice by trading highly regarded Tim Connolly and Taylor Pyatt for Mike Peca. The basis of the “new” Islanders nucleus has been formed today, and as custom to other Milbury drafts, there have been questions left unanswered.
Yesterday, the Islanders traded Bill Muckalt, Zdeno Chara, and the 2nd selection in the 2001 draft (Jason Spezza) for Alexie Yashin.I am very happy about this deal because it made sure that the Islanders were getting the top line center that they had lacked since the days of Pierre Turgeon. Although it was hard to see the big bruiser Chara go to Ottawa, both teams received what they needed through this deal. Yashin was very excited when he heard the news and is glad to be an Islander; something that Mike Milbury wanted his players to be.
Today, Milbury traded young guns Taylor Pyatt and Tim Connolly to Buffalo for Mike Peca. Peca, who is regarded as one of the top two-way centers in the game, held out last season due to a contract dispute. Peca, who grew up watching the likes of Mike Bossy and Bryan Trottier, was speechless when he heard the news. Peca also spoke very highly of the Islanders, and said that with the additions of Yashin and himself, this is a new team.
The winner of these deals will depend on three players. Those players being Tim Connolly, Taylor Pyatt, and Jason Spezza. Connolly, who has the moves and the potential to be a top 20 point producer in a matter or year Read more»

Day One: Hawks Make Zhamnov Happy – Will the Fans Be Next?

by Bill Placzek

I made my feelings clear that if things fell in place, Don Blackburn could
have been taken at #9. I really didn’t think he would be there. Or maybe I
felt Ruutu’s knee surgeries would knock him down a notch. Nonetheless,
Blackburn was higher on my board and I would have taken him.

Even if all the Hawk farm goalies develop, you can never have enough
goalies. Ask San Jose, Buffalo, and New Jersey who take one or two early each
year. That was my thinking …. one of the elite eight.

Don’t get me wrong, it is difficult to quibble when your home team takes a
winner, already in the top Finnish league and the hardest working,
orneriest,solid muscle mass forechecker available.
And when Ruutu gets back on his skates in August after the TWO problems with his knee are healed he may be a better pro than Blackburn.

When Dallas takes the goalie you are going to take as an alternative to
Blackburn, Freeze goalie Jason Bacashihua, two picks before you, you don’t
panic!

You either trade out or you go to another position, but you do not REACH!

If you do, to use Mel Kiper’s coined expression, you simply don’t know what
the draft is about.

To take Adam Munro was an insult to each of us, as he was clearly not the
best player available.

Into the 3rd round, Michel Goulet stopped and I asked his interpretation of
this blunder. I said to him, “You KNOW they (Blackhawks) went goalie because
Dallas took the kid they wanted. Honestly, was Munro that high on the
Avalanche board?” He shook his head head Read more»
