Islanders shake up entry draft

SLAM Sports: Islanders shake up entry draft "Later, instead of using his second-round pick, 35th overall, Milbury traded it to Edmonton, along with highly touted defenceman Eric Brewer, 21, and big left-winger Josh Green, 22, for veteran Oilers defenceman Roman Hamrlik, 26."

I had heard that Hamrlik was on the market, but I'm sad to see him go. What a powerplay specialist. New York is doing making big moves -- they draft a goalie 1st overall and then trade away their two existing goalies!

That's bold. (and so was the last sentence!)
