    Two of the biggest prospects in a couple of years will be in this years draft, here's the top five teams who won the lottery last night.

    1. New York Islanders
    2. Tampa Bay Lightning
    3. Colorado Avalache
    4. Atlanta Thrashers
    5. L.A Kings

    Burke had a news conference last night, and he said that he will not everything in his power to get the first pick and get Tavaras. Whoever gets the two first selections will get franchise players. John Tavaras and Victor Hedman are both studs.

    Those two guys were one of the reasosn I almost wanted to Blues to do bad again this year.

    I think I'll take the playoff birth, however.

    The islanders definitely have room for a young star thats for sure. I honestly cant think of anyone on their roster that impresses me or sticks out. Is Roman Hamrlik still over there?

    Tampa Bay picking up the second pick. That'll be a good one for them, hopefully they can make the most of it. Its obvious they are hurting after releasing Boyle (was it Boyle?) for the cap space and what not.

    The Hammer is with the Canadiens.

    Yeah they had to get rid of Boyle because of cap space issue, they got a good star in Stamkos last season and now it seems like they are going to get a stud defenseman in Hedman, who's predicted to be the next Lindstrom.

    Good for the Islanders. I hope to see them back in the playoffs in a few years, get that other New York team outta there. Haha. Sorry Turbo.

    How very true. And ya, brian burke seemed extremely intent on getting tavares...i doubt i would want to get in his way on that one. Im not sure how he plans on doing it though...do the leafs have a bunch of picks they can trade?

    anyways, i would love to see the islanders off the bottom and tavares definitely can't hurt the chances of that happening...burke has good reason for wanting him so bad, hes a damn fine player.
