At this point, I feel that Minnesota is going to get one of the leftovers between Connolly, Nino, Ryan Johansen, Gormley and Skinner provided they don't trade up or down. But with that said, it's getting to be harder and harder to see Nino drop to #9.

Kabanov on the other hand is a larger wild card due to the character issues and Russian factor. I could see him going anywhere from 15-55. Same goes with Alt due to his raw, unpolished play and late commitment to hockey. That could easily drop him down a few rounds. I'm all for drafting a couple of wild cards (and based upon last year's draft so is Chuck Fletcher), but it's usually the case when they drop rather than hold the position (i.e. Haula in the 7th).
