I don't see Ryan Murray getting past #3, if not #2. He is going to be so good. I would love a defenseman if the value were there depending on where we're picking.. But I wouldn't pick one just to pick one. If Alex Galchenyuk or Grigorenko fall past a bunch of the defensemen, I wouldn't have a problem picking one of them.
That said, I don't see a top-end forward falling to where the Wild will be so a D seems a little more realistic. Ebert, Trouba, Reinhart or Rielly could be realistic options that I see us getting. If somehow this season slips out from under us and we get a top 3 pick, if Nail isn't the choice, Ryan Murray is the way to go.
