Columbus gets 3 1st round picks this year (and you know at least one of those will be really, really early).

Just imagine if LA and the Rangers play for the cup this season (a distinct possibility) and Columbus finishes last overall (again a good possibility).

Columbus could pick #1, #29, #30 and #31 in that case... and if NJ forfeits those last 3 would all move up by one. They effectively have 4 1st round picks in a deep draft year no matter which way you cut it. If they draft well (and bundle players/picks and move up) they certainly could come out of this draft stacked with talented prospects.
