Unless the Islanders really reach, I can't see Rielly off the board before our pick.
I can't wait until two of Columbus, Montreal, and Islanders draft Galchenyuk and Grigorenko, and Burke flips out. Forsberg may be a good player, but he projects as a winger in the NHL and vision is not his strength.
I wonder if that means Toronto or Anaheim reaches for Faska or Gaunce? Hoping they can be the center they need?
