Im asking cause i want really draft few good defenders like Nurse,Ristolainen and Zadorov.

These are just speculation but how it looks in draft day:

Briere+2nd to Buffalo to get 1st (at this time eight pick) to get Nurse.
Our first to Columbus for their own 1st (ninth)+NYRs first(Sixteenth)
NYRs first (sixteenth)+Gustafson to Devils for their 1st (Thirteenth) to get Zadorov.

I was using draftsite.coms list wondering these picks.

How you think that kind of draft day?
Buffalo probably wants nothing to do with Briere, they are in full rebuild mode and would value that high pick way more than Danny. Columbus might be interested in moving up if we are high enough and there is someone they like but certainly not at the price of both of their first rounders. And even though 16th to 13th isn't a huge jump the Devils aren't going to do a division rival any favors just for Gus.

To be honest I also think it's much more likely we end up drafting in the 7-10 range than 2-5. I hope nobody is hoping too hard for Jones, Mackinnon, or Drouin.
