they should trade it to the Blue Jackets for Mike Commadore, and Fredrik Modin

People still have a hard time with distinguishing between pre-Milbury and post-Milbury Islanders. Mike left this franchise in shambles.

Burke came out and said that he wants to move up to first and take Tavares.

It'll be interesting to see if Burke wears down Snow over the next couple of months with offers and winds up with the #1, giving up season-tickets for Tavares.

As an Islanders fan, I'll lose sleep the next couple months over "The New York Islanders trade the first overall pick for Tomas Kaberle, Matt Stajan and Justin Pogge, plus a 2010 3rd rounder" nightmares

Im with PSV.. just how long can Garth Snow hold out? will the 'we have no intention of trading the 1st pick' turn into 'we will field all offers and review them on their merit'...or worse 'we got jason blake back!'

If I was Charles Wang, I'd lock Garth Snow in a closet for the next two months and not let him talk with any other GM.

Tavares is the second coming of Mike Bossy -- you do not want to give up a competitive advantage like that, most certainly not to Burke for a used puck bag....which is what Burke will bully Snow into agreeing to, if given half the chance.

It's not just the competitive advantage Tavares brings to the table, it's also his potential for marketing. He's a big name with a fair amount of hype surrounding him. The Islanders are a franchise in desperate need of something that can generate excitement/revenue.

As for Burke getting that pick, I just don't see how. Unless he gets Snow six sheets to the wind he'd have to overpay for the thing, and with Toronto needing to focus on their own youth movement/prospect pool it doesn't make sense to give up a lot of assets for a guy, no matter what his projected value is.

I'm a bit disappointed that Colorado didn't sneak up a spot for Hedman, but I'm not crying over the prospects of Duschene. Will be interesting to see what the Avs do in terms of rebuilding - I don't think they need to tear it all down and start over as they've got some solid pieces and look as though they can bounce back strongly with a couple of moves, but I'm not sure all the answers are out there this year. They need goaltending badly, and what little of it will be available is going to bring them close to the cap.

Milbury was a disaster, but remember it was Garth Snow that signed Rick DiPietro to that contract.

Pure Slaughter Value: Burke came out and said that he wants to move up to first and take Tavares.

Yeah, I'm wondering if the league may end up putting a smackdown on him for saying that, especially if Tavares suddenly comes down with Eric Lindros syndrome and says that he doesn't want to play for the Isles and quietly holds out to be traded.

/probably won't because the league loves Toronto, even though they're an embarrassment to the league.

Yeah .. the whole... supporting other teams that they put in shiat hockey markets thing is really a downer on the league. Or that we have the 2nd most Stanley Cups... or that we are the biggest market in the NHL. It's okay tho... Our last Captain will lead the Canucks to the cup because no one else on their current roster could.

I think Bettman would veto any trade of Tavares to Toronto. He wants to grow the US market, not help the leafs make more money.

I also don't think Toronto has anything in their system that would help the Islanders get better sooner. They have a limited prospect pool and very little depth at the NHL level. They need all the prospects they can get, one really good prospect on a crappy team will not help, 4 reasonalbly good prospects will help.

Either way it's going to be a long road back to respectablity for both the Islanders and the Leafs. At least the leafs will still make lots of money while 'rebuilding'.

I have seen Tavares play a number of times for Oshawa and London, including last week when London swept my home team, Saginaw. Honestly, I think despite his big OHL numbers this kid is definitely not a hundred point NHL scorer. He works hard only on the offensive side of the puck and has great hands, shot, a great scoring sense. However, he's doesn't have the speed of a NHL superstar, in fact he looks slow out there. In last week's series Nazem Kadri (rated 10th for the draft) impressed me much more than Tavares. I like Tavares' grit, overall style, and the way he acts humble in interviews, but people who refer to him as "the next one" are going to be disappointed, but that won't stop the Canadian media from giving him the ESPN tiger woods treatment.

NEVER going to happen. Tavares has been built up by Isles fans all year, they know if they don't take him it will be mutiny. Plus he's exactly what we need, a scoring power forward. He also brings star power in a time when the Isles need it (Lighthouse)
 
2009-04-15 11:30:34 AM
And I would also like to commend VS and the NHL for actually making a draft lottery exciting. When the Isles card came up for #1 i had to change my pants. Probably more intense than 80 of our games this year

NHL/NBA/etc really need to re-think the whole draft. All it does is reward teams for putting a bad product on the ice (see Penguins, caps, and islanders, who have all sent out AHL teams to get good draft picks).

Meanwhile, teams like Toronto, NYR, Dallas, Minnesota, etc who try to at least ice competitive teams can never get a leg-up. Teams like them, always battling around the 6-10 slots, have enough dignity to try to play the game every night, and it gets them nowhere.

No, the Rangers trouble comes in the form of a GM who hires old, busted players on the slide, loading them with insane contracts, then having to give up fan favorites and good players.

I call it "Eric Bischoff Syndrome".

From what I've seen of Tavares, he's going to make it in the NHL largely on smarts. He finds otherwise impossible passing lanes, and he always manages to sneak his way into open ice. I don't know that we've seen a player like him before.

I get the Bossy comparisons on his shooting, but he strikes me as a mashup of Brett Hull and Peter Stastny, simply in terms of Hull's ability to sneak his way into a scoring position and Stastny's playmaking abilities. Not that I'm suggesting his career'll be as good as either of theirs, I think we're looking more at Dany Heatley 40-40 numbers somewhere down the line.

Wow, I'm memorable? Haha thanks for the shout-out.

And I used to be ok with either way Snow could go with this, but now he'd damn well better take Tavares. Asses need to be placed in the seats, and scorers will do that. Especially when you consider he can grow up with the other kids (Okposo, Bailey, Comeau, etc.)

I'm sure Hedman will be an excellent defenseman. But we need the scoring and the star power here on the island.
 
2009-04-15 12:24:01 PM
I do trust Burke and am really happy with the moves he's making with guys like Stalberg, Hanson, Bozak, and hopefully Gustavsson, but I really hope he doesn't sell the Leafs (or the Isles, fair trades are the best ones) up the river trying to get Tavares.

Hopefully, if it works, it'd be a fair trade for both parties. I'd like to see the Isles do well too.

The Leafs would never give up a number one defenceman, a number two centre, a top goaltending prospect and a draft pick to move up six spots in the draft. Burke isn't an idiot. A more likely trade would be the Leafs number 7 pick and Kaberle straight up. It's a fairly deep draft year.

...except that Stajan is a third line centre and Pogge can't carry his AHL team, let alone an NHL team. Pogge may be the leafs top goaltending prospect, but he not one of the top goaltending propects in the NHL. If he was, why is Burke going after the Swedish goalie, or why did he sign Cujo and trade for Gerber instead of playing Pogge?

If that gets the job done, Snow should be sacked immediately. That 1st overall shouldn't be traded for anything short of a landslide, simply because of what it represents to the fan-base. It's not a "fair-value" thing, it's that the Isles are in desperate need of a star.

Now, I'd also argue that the difference between (presumably) Tavares and Schenn/Cowen is bigger than just Kaberle. He's 30, coming off a couple injuries, and only has two years left on his contract. That's not a worthwhile trade for a rebuilding franchise, regardless of Kaberle's obvious talents. If the Isles had a legitimate chance to compete next year it might be a different story, but what're the odds of that happening?

I think you might be surprised at the difference between what a team wants in return for a first overall pick and what a team is willing to give up in order to get a first overall pick. Clearly the 7th spot is on the table. I guess it's a matter of what else the Leafs are willing to give up. Leafs fans have seen so many draft day disasters that I wouldn't be surprised if they traded Schenn, Kaberle, the 7 pick, next years first draft pick, the ACC, the logo etc in order to get Tavares.

I honestly don't think Tavares will be an impact player the way Crosby/Ovechkin/Malkin will be. I think he'll be a great NHLer, but he's definitely not the second coming. He'll need a couple of years to develop his game in the league a la Stamkos.

Heatley is a rare 50-50 guy (at least should be on a real team) so I don't think that's the optimal comparison.

Pogge is trade bait. Toskala will be backing up a new face next year. While it looks like Pogge may not pan out in the NHL right now, I'm sure there are a few teams willing to give him a shot. He was 26-21 for the Marlies this year. Most of the Marlies spent their time going up and down between AHL/NHL so it wasn't really a great season for them either. Point being that I think at some point Pogge will be a number one goalie in the league somewhere. But not for another couple of years.

Judging by what I've seen of Tavares, yes, he's very good, but he's not worth mortgaging the future over. He was not the best player at the World Juniors or the two times I saw him in the OHL.

Burke is crazy if he's going to trade big for a higher draft. Incremental trades - fine - if he has his eye on a particular player, but this year's draft is deep, and the top ten are all very solid prospects. The deeper drafts are where he'll show his value has GM. His draft record is not so hot. At least his trading record is better.

Sirjohnfalstaff: Burke is looking for a starting goalie period. Toskala is not the answer.

He's the best option though. Star goalies are very rare - who does he think he can get? Plus goalies are a serious crap shoot. Who would have thought that Mason would breakout like he did? Or Rinne. Gerber had a good season, but has never been able to reproduce it. Price was the "franchise" player.

Plus he signed Bozak for 4 mil. Hope he's not another Brunstrom or Winchester.

Burke has gotten a lot of credit for walking into favourable situations before. I'm far from convinced he's actually what Toronto needs.

How Burke and Wilson have put it is that Toskala will be starting next year with (hopefully) Gustavsson as backup. Pogge can stay in the AHL, Gerber and Cujo will be gone. If Toskala can't take the load, then Gustavsson should be good enough to split the time for competition.

Rectum damn near killed em: Heatley is a rare 50-50 guy (at least should be on a real team) so I don't think that's the optimal comparison.

Heatley was back to back 50-50 in 05-06 and 06-07. 40-40 last year and 39-33 this year. His bad years coincide with Ottawa's bad years. His bad is better than most player's good. He'll make at least 40-40 next year.

Garth Snow was on Leaf's Lunch today at noon with Dreger and Watters. Earlier Dreger broke the news that Burke's already been in touch with both the GM of the Islanders and Tampa Bay lightning.

When asked by dreger if he can confirm this, as to whether or not they're in talks or if it was just a brief call to acknowledge that Toronto's interested in the first pick Snow replied (as far as I can remember): "...the way that....[pause] heh, I won't even speak his name, but the way 'that man' goes about his business is the polar opposite of the way I go about mine. I'm not about to go up on a soapbox and announce my, and my team's intentions."

Read into that what you will, but I'm not convinced the Leafs will be able to pry the 1st round pick out of Snow's hands. He probably already has a 15 year deal lined up for him to sign ;)

I would listen to offers if I were Garth Snow. I think I'd start listening around a proven veteran (with a longer contract), a top level prospect (Mike Green, Phil Kessel types) and your first round pick. Anything less would be instantly dismissed. The Islanders need Tavares for more than just hockey, they need him to be the face of the franchise and sell the Lighthouse Project.

I read fark for the pics: Preferred Nomenclature: A message to Leafs fans: We don't want to trade our star first pick for a boatload of your crap.

If Garth Snow even considers this he is farking retarded, but the thing about the Islanders is you can never be too sure they won't do something so stupid. If this goes through i will organize a mass suicide off the top of the Marriott next to the Coliseum.
