I haven't followed prospects closely enough, but what I can get from reading various publications, team needs,'s how I can see it playing out. Edmonton and the Islanders really need defense and I'm not sure they'd strictly go BPA. If I had to guess, I think it would go something like this:

Columbus: Yakupov
Montreal: Grigorenko
Edmonton: Murray
Islanders: Dumba (or maybe they go BPA and take Forsberg)?

After that, it depends who finishes below the Canes.

Toronto or Buffalo would probably go after a Center (Galchenyuk?)
I would guess Tampa might go BPA (Forsberg or Dumba).

So IF Carolina picks 7th, I would guess that Yakupov, Grigorenko, Murray, Dumba, Galchenyuk, and Forsberg are all of that table. Just my guess not knowing as much about these guys that DaveG and others do.

So that leaves a pool of forwards that consist of Collberg, Faksa, Girgensons, Aberg and Gaunce. I don't know much about these guys to know who the Canes should/might want to target if they indeed look at a forward.

EDIT: but given the link to the Kitchener Rangers, I wouldn't be surprised at all with Faksa
