If we are #4-6, Galchenyuk would be a Timmins pick. He's got a great work ethic and skill. His knee is an issue but I don't see this kid sliding past #7.
Either way, both would be solid choices.
Grigorenko is the favorite to be #2 but that's fading with each passing day. Teams are all over the board on him...a few have him ahead of Yakupov, the rest are from #2 to #6-7. Some teams see a bit of Filatov and Semin in Grigorenko, doesn't have the passion and burning desire to win that Yakupov has.
