It's going to be interesting to see where he lands. Pittsburgh will 100% take him if he is there because of the Malkin factor.

Washington will possibly grab him with the 11th pick, or the 16th. Having two firsts for them allows them to take a risk and go with a safer option.

St. Louis with the 25th pick could go after him as well with Taresenko being in their system. They could trade up as well if they want to take the risk.

The best trade option might be with Buffalo @ 21. Right after Philly, right before Pittsburgh. Regeir has turned down trade offers for that pick though.

The longer Grigorenko sits there, the more interesting deals might happen. Even bigger trades might go down because of him dropping.

I'm going to say the draft goes like this:

1. Yakupov
2. Murray
3. Teravainen
4. Reinhart
5. Galchenyuk
6. Trouba
7. Reilly
8. Faksa
9. Dumba
10. Maata
