I think if one of those 3 forwards are there NJ will pick them. Their beat writer did say if they have a forward and dman ranked equally they will go with a forward, but they do like the big 3 dmen.

Dallas is the real wild card here.
Yeah, NJ is in a very similar position that we were in with Couturier (even though we didn't know it at the time). NJ needs help everywhere, and I can't see them passing on Monahan or Lindholm if one of them is available. Not sure how they'd feel about Nichushkin, though.

My projection:

COL- Mackinnon
FLA- Barkov
TB- Jones
NSH- Drouin
CAR- Nurse/Risto/Zadorov
CGY- Lindholm
EDM- Monahan
BUF- Shinkaruk
NJ- Nichushkin
DAL- Wennberg

EDIT: Also, I don't think it's impossible for Drouin to fall. I could definitely see Nashville liking Monahan or Lindholm more than Drouin. Wouldn't shock me to see Drouin end up to Carolina or Calgary.
