I think 3-5 will go like this...

Chi- Barker
CBJ- Ladd
Phx- Tukonen

If Rangers want Olesz, he'll be there, I think. But, if I'm Columbus, I'd swap with the Rangers, pick up a second and pick one of Ladd, Tukonen or Thelen.
No way! I am a huge fan of the Hawks and read all the press... and the more I read it the more I think the Hawks are leaning towards either Ladd or Picard.

But these things I am fairly sure of:
1.CBJ will take Barker.
2.Tukonen will not be picked before Olesz.
3.Olesz will not slide past Phx.

As for the the guy to fall the hardest? I think it will be Salmonsson. Teams are very wary of injured players.
Look at James Wisnewski 2 years ago. He was slotted to go in the top 60, but had a serious knee injury a month before the draft. Chicago ended up picking him up in the 5th round. Long story short, he was just named as the CHL defensman of the year.
