Sources tell Point Blank that Charles Wang and Garth Snow were in attendance when Matt Duchene and his Brampton Battalion hosted Windsor in Game 2 of their Ontario Hockey League Final on Friday night.



While there wasn’t a post-game meeting as the Islanders owner and GM had two weeks ago with John Tavares, we’re told Duchene plans to visit with the Islanders on Long Island a few weeks after the completion of his season.



Windsor defeated Duchene’s Battalion 5-3 on Friday night after crushing them 10-1 in Game 1. Duchene did not have a point in the game. Besides Wang and Snow, Friday’s game was also attended by Lightning owner Oren Koules and GM Brian Lawton and by Thrashers GM Don Waddell.



Down 2 games to 0, Brampton won in Windsor on Monday night, 4-2, behind a goal and an assist from Duchene. Game 4 is Wednesday in Brampton.



In 57 regular season games this season, the 5-11, 195-pound center was 31-48-79. So far in 19 playoff games, Duchene has 14 goals and 12 assists for 26 points.

well duchene might be a better skater and plays well in both ends. but between duchene and JT the islanders need to chose the player who's more likely to put the puck in the net more often. if they're going to draft a forward it's got to be tavares

tavares scores REALLY REALLY good goals

and thats what we need...
we have plenty of young speed on this team...

I think Okposo is a better Skater than Duchene...

if the isles take duchene idk what i'd think if i were a islander fan...they obviously need tavares but getting hedman wouldnt be too bad for them either but for the current moment and state of the franchise they have to draft jt or if they were not to trade the pick for a BIG name player

i didnt say i wouldnt rather have tavares..i want tavares...i was just commenting on how fast duchene was...i think okposo may be a stronger skater, but idk if hes faster...okie doesnt have breakaway speed like duchene

the islanders cant lose with whoever they take. you guys need to be patient the way the pens and caps were. suck and draft. suck and draft. suck and draft. then eventually you'll be good. but if anyone can screw it up, its the isles. it's too bad you don't have a marquee player to offer up to the lightning in order to get the 2nd pick too.

they may be missing that marquee player...but they have 4 other picks in the top 40

Tavares the marquee guy

trade the 26th overall up

and get a solid D-man

and you have set yourselves up very well in 1 draft

Islanders trade down to 3 lol to get duschenne. That would be a legit reason to hate your franchise buuut I doubt it will happen. Islanders will get one of the big 2
