If Galchenyuk somehow falls to us (which would be astonishing because both Anaheim and Toronto need him, and it seems Montreal wants him) I don't think there's any question he's the pick. Reports are that Flahr really really likes him.

It's hard to say who the front office likes for defensemen though. They seem to have a somewhat different outlook than convention. I expect Yakupov, Galchenyuk, Grigorenko, and Murray will all go before our pick. It's plausible that Forsberg could go up there too, but I am much less convinced of that. I'd say it's about 50/50 that Dumba's gone by our pick as well. Reinhart, Faksa, and Trouba could all go before us as well (meaning Faksa to either Toronto or Anaheim and Reinhart/Trouba to Anaheim or NYI).

Obviously, I'd like us to pick Rielly. If Dumba's available, I think we probably should pick him, but as I've mentioned, I'm not much of a fan (which is strange considering how much I like P.K. Subban). Over anyone else, I'd go with Galchenyuk though.
