My guess is TB will need to trade up to 7.
The Wild are somewhat in the same boat as Carolina, why would they trade down? They're at a point in rebuilding their prospect pool where they're looking just for quality, not quantity. A second first would be nice, but I think the team would much rather have the higher pick.

Besides, considering Flahr's usual preferences in drafting, I suspect Rielly is probably around 3rd or 4th on the Wild's board. I think Tampa would need to move up to 6th to get Rielly because I can't see the Wild trading down with Rielly on the board unless they really like someone later who they're confident will still be around at 10.
