I think he goes to either the New York Islanders or Toronto. The Isle's will choose between Dumba, Trouba and Rielly, and a strong argument could be made that they should take the big, defensive defenseman. As for Toronto, Brian Burke has already said that he is looking for more size, either on defense or offense. Trouba fits the bill.
Also, I don't like the comparisons to Bogosian or Jack Johnson really. What's great about Trouba is that he plays a very controlled game with few, if any holes. Much more comprable to a guy like Robin Regehr or perhaps Nik Kronwall.
