Here's my wild stab at draft day:

1. Oilers - Nail Yakupov
2. Blue Jackets - Alex Galchenyuk
3. Canadiens - Mikhail Grigorenko
4. Islanders - Ryan Murray
5(a). Penguins - Mathew Dumba
6. Ducks - Filip Forsberg
7. Wild - Griffin Reinhart
8. Hurricanes - Jacob Trouba
9. Jets - Radek Faksa
10. Lightning - Zemgus Girgensons

(a) Toronto trades 5th overall pick, Nazem Kadri and the rights to Matt Frattin to Pittsburgh for Jordan Staal and the 22nd.

Have a strong hunch about Girgensons at #10, he just seems like a guy who would fit the Lightning well. Dumba is a boom/bust pick, but the Penguins would be in a better position to take on that risk. I know most mocks have the Ducks taking a defenseman, but I think Forsberg is too good to pass up at #6.
