That's the breakdown we're likely looking at.

Unless we win the lottery, all of Colorado, Carolina, and Edmonton will be picking before us. Even if Edmonton takes Monahan somehow, there is zero chance we end up with Nurse.
Eh, I don't think that's necessarily true.

1. Florida - MacKinnon
2. Colorado - Jones
3. Tampa Bay - Drouin
4. Nashville - Monahan/Barkov [no chance they take Nichushkin, IMO]
5. Carolina - Nichushkin [they did extend Semin, after all)
6. Edmonton - Monahan/Barkov/Lindholm
7. Calgary - Monahan/Lindholm
8. Philadelphia - Nurse

I agree it gets trickier if we are picking 9th instead of 8th.

Really, the one two teams in the top seven that I can see realistically picking Nichushkin are Tampa Bay (if they end up picking 4-7) and Carolina.
