Since we're in the mock draft swing of things, let's have a look at another one. Blue Jackets television voice Jeff Rimer is one of the most connected people in the NHL, and he has been doing his homework leading up to this year's NHL Draft. There's a lot of intrigue and uncertainty at the top of the draft board, and based on the varying opinions and mock drafts out there, it's easy to decipher that there's no true consensus from picks 1-10.

We checked in with Rimer recently and he was kind enough to submit his projections for the top 10 selections. Here they are:

JEFF RIMER'S MOCK DRAFT:

1. EDMONTON OILERS: Nail Yakupov

2. COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS: Ryan Murray

3. MONTREAL CANADIENS: Filip Forsberg

4. NEW YORK ISLANDERS: Morgan Rielly

5. TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS: Mikhail Grigorenko

6. ANAHEIM DUCKS: Matthew Dumba

7. MINNESOTA WILD: Griffin Reinhart

8. CAROLINA HURRICANES: Alex Galchenyuk

9. WINNIPEG JETS: Radek Faksa
