My money is on #2 and a 3rd to Toronto for #5 and Luke Schenn.

Then Columbus gets Filip Forsberg with #5.
Yes. Yakupov definitely doesn't make it to #3, someone would trade up, even if it's just Montreal and then Columbus gets Forsberg and a pick or something.

The problem with Columbus trading #2 to Toronto is that the Islanders may take Forsberg if it goes Murray, Yakupov, Galchenyuk before them. Edmonton runs the same risk of not getting Murray if they trade down to #5.
