Okay, I did misread you. :-)

What-if discussions about real battles don't interest me much, I find it difficult to take them seriously. Unless they are being used to reinforce useful lessons about actual outcomes.

Otherwise, they smack to me of 'de sowf will rahze aginn' syndrome.

Further, it seem silly to consider Midway in isolation from Coral Sea, which took out two IJN fleet carriers, so that the former battle defined the USN's ability to win Midway. And the timing is so close.

Midway wasn't a draw, it was a shattering defeat for the IJN, and the turning point of the Pacific War.
