Sharks eliminated! Isles' pick in Campoli deal is cemented at #26

The New York Islanders now know where the pick that they acquired in the Chris Campoli trade with Ottawa.  With the Sharks losing to Anaheim 4-1 tonight, the Isles, who acquired the Sharks' pick from Ottawa in that deal will now have the 26th overall pick.

With Pittsburgh's win yesterday, the Isles will have seven picks in the first three rounds (barring a trade of course).

Whether the Isles use that 26th pick remains to be seen.  If the Isles call someone's name though, they can only hope it works out as well as the only other time they selected 26th overall.  That pick was used in 1991 -- the Islanders selected Zigmund Palffy.

 Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982.
