I really don't see Columbus drafting Galchenyuk. Of the forwards, I think he's the most likely, but so much media attention has been given to him being "Russian" (insert long rant here about his heritage) that I don't think they can take the PR hit. There could be a slim chance for them to select Forsberg there, but otherwise I'd say it's defenseman or trade down for Columbus.

Or we could get all crazy and they convince Edmonton that Wisniewski+ is good enough for 1st overall and draft both Yakupov and Galchenyuk. Maybe they wouldn't draft one Russian, but they could spin the PR to draft two...
