Having two picks in the top half of the first round would be a welcome condition for any team. Potentially adding those players to an already solid lineup has to have some of the teams in the Southeast wondering what to do to counter that threat. But, you know, GMGM doesn't know what he's doing, right?

With Radek Faska already in the fold, do the Caps turn their attention to the blue line, or do they continue to stock up on forwards? At just over half way through the draft, it is still difficult to go wrong.

Who will the Caps take at 16?

Our draft thus far:

  1. Edmonton Oilers: Nail Yakupov
  2. Columbus Blue Jackets: Ryan Murray
  3. Montreal Canadiens: Alex Galchenyuk
  4. New York Islanders: Filip Forsberg
  5. Toronto Maple Leafs: Mikhail Grigorenko
  6. Anaheim Ducks: Matthew Dumba
  7. Minnesota Wild: Jacob Trouba
  8. Carolina Hurricanes: Teuvo Teravainen
  9. Winnipeg Jets: Morgan Rielly
  10. Tampa Bay Lightning: Griffin Reinhart
  11. Washington Capitals (from Colorado): Radek Faksa
  12. Buffalo Sabres: Cody Ceci
  13. Dallas Stars - Zemgus Girgensons
  14. Calgary Flames - Olli Maata
  15. Ottawa Senators - Brendan Guance
