Again, back on topic:
Rumors had been leaking out that Montreal was not a fan of Grigorenko (although that could easily have been an attempt to dissuade Edmonton from picking him at #2). With Gauthier out, it's less clear the direction they could take. One of the rumored potential replacements for Gauthier is Patrick Roy...who just so happens to be a current member of the Quebec Remparts...kind of like Grigorenko...
So it's reasonable to think we could pick Galchenyuk up even if we're around 5th.
If we end up trading down a few spots, I might think we could take a look at Faksa. He's certainly not on the same level as Yak/Grig/Gal, but if we had theoretically traded down to 10th, I wouldn't mind picking him (assuming Ceci and Rielly are gone).
