Still think we're going to grab Monahan, no surprises till later in the round, where the risk/reward tilt starts making picks like Nurse and Nichushkin more appealing.

Colorado - Jones
Florida - McK
Tampa - Drouin
Nashville - Barkov
Carolina - Monahan

Nurse probably won't make it pas the Oilers, and I see Nichushkin dropping till New Jersey.
This would be my guess also, which means it likely won't work out this way. I've been surprised by how the top 5 have panned out the last few years so I suspect there will be some surprises again this year. I'll be quite surprised if Jones and McK don't go 1-2, but after that, I wouldn't at all be surprised by guys slipping / moving up.
