Isles To Retain 2014 First Round Pick

What had been speculated about for months was officially announced today as the Islanders confirmed that they will be keeping this years first round pick and sending Buffalo the teams first round pick next year to complete the Thomas Vanek trade.

This had been a talking point for a while due to the strength of next seasons draft if the team should part with this years first round pick to make sure they keep their pick next season.

I'm a little in between on this because I saw it from both sides.  Although I wouldn't have been against sending this years pick to Buffalo and keeping next seasons I can understand why they didn't.
