I don't think it's really likely, but I wouldn't rule out a trade with Carolina.
Bingo. Based on my (limited) knowledge of WPG's organization, they're probably not looking for OFD either. Get WPG and CAR into a bidding war for the Wild's pick, since there's a very good chance they'll both be after Teravainen. Or alternatively, just lie and say that we're going to pick him unless CAR convinces us otherwise. It's not entirely implausible; he fits a mold.
