Hey, we are doing a mock draft at Light House Hockey (Islanders blog) and I am acting on Joe Nieuwendyk's behalf. Although Dallas is my west coast favorite I am having a hard time figuring out which way Joe would go in the draft. I know that he only had 5 picks in each of the last two drafts and you seem to be getting younger. With that I must ask, would you have any idea what way Joe may be leaning if he doesn't trade the pick?
I read another post that stated that he is looking for the bigger D men and that he is not afraid to go after the smaller but skilled O. If he does go after front man I would guess that the Stars would go after Sven Bartschi or Joel Armia. What are your thoughts?
I'm thankful for any input.
