XM Radio: NYI Winners of NHL Draft

On Saturday afternoon, XM Radio's Fast Hockey Show claimed the Islanders as one the 2008 NHL Entry Draft's big winners. By trading down and stocking up on draft picks to grab Josh Bailey, the Islanders were able to draft second-day steals like Aaron Ness, Jyri Niemi, Kirill Petrov and David Toews amongst others.

XM Radio was most impressed by the way Islanders GM Garth Snow traded down to acquire extra picks while still drafting the player they targeted from the beginning. The show went onto say that this enabled the team to take a chance on Petrov, who was the second ranked European skater in the draft, but fell because of his contract status in Russia.

Said one of the show's hosts: "What goes un-noticed is by moving back down twice and picking up three extra picks in the first three rounds [the Islanders] were then able to take a complete flyer on [Petrov], who was a top-10 talent at No. 73."

The Fast Hockey Show on NHL Home Ice XM 204 is hosted by Kyle Woodleif from the Red Line Report, Todd Carrol from The Fast Hockey Show, James Murphy from the Fast Hockey Show and Patrick King from Sportsnet.ca.

Special thanks to producer Shawn Lavigne and Peter Berce of XM Radio.
