Only way I see them passing is if they aren't afraid to take Nichushkin. He's so incredibly talented and can play both wings, so he too could be the one to fill in for St. Louis when his day comes.

Other than that, the top-3 seemed to fall perfectly:
Colorado will likely take the guy who started his hockey "career" there.
Florida gets the #1C they need, and a future duo of Huberdeau/MacKinnon
Tampa Bay gets a skilled winger to put beside Stamkos, and an eventual replacement for the aging St. Louis.

I've said it before and i'll say it again... the NHL caught on to us finding out their plan to make the Oilers the next big dynasty, so they took the top-3 players and had the cards fall ever so perfectly. It was rigged, RIGGED I tell you!!!
