Polls: What do you think the Islanders will do? What do you want them to do?

By John Vogl

The Inside the NHL column in Sunday's paper will examine the New York Islanders' options regarding their first-round picks. They have to give either their 2014 or 2015 selection to the Sabres as part of their trade to get Thomas Vanek.

This year's pick is No. 5 overall. There's no telling what the 2015 pick could be. Given the Islanders' history, they'll miss the playoffs and it'll be another high pick with Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel available in the lottery. Given New York's roster, the club might make the postseason and the pick would be later in the first round.

The Islanders have until June 1 to decide. You get to do it now.
