We must draft at least a goalie or two in the next 2-3 years. For the rest I'd like us to go offense all the way. Draft the forward with the best skill set available. Preferably big and/or physical (wich is pretty rare). You can work with players the way we did with kosty sr.

Of course you draft defensemen if there is one BIG defenseman that is clearly the BPA. If we could draft like 15-18 skilled forwards in the next 3 years we are pretty sure to get an elite one. Or near elite. at least one of 15-18 drafted players will be a star player if they are in the some mold...
