Sharks win President's Trophy
With the Bruins' loss this afternoon, the San Jose Sharks have won the President's Trophy. This means that the pick that the Isles received from Ottawa in the Campoli deal will be no better than 26th (if the Sharks lose in the first two rounds of the playoffs). If the Sharks lose in the conference finals, the Isles will receive the 28th pick. The Stanley Cup runner-up and winner pick 29th and 30th respectively.Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982.
