BPA is generally a good idea but I think you should have a well-balanced prospect pool. Of course, if there's a d-man available thats a tier above all the prospects left, then of course pick the d-man, but if theres a wide selection of prospects thats even in skill, picking to fill a hole would be a good idea.

In the 2010 draft, after guys like Nino and Connolly, there's a wide even spread of prospects so filling out a hole wouldn't be a bad idea (no giggles please...)
IMO, if you have players rated close to the same, always lean towards the goal scorer, as goal scoring is THE hardest thing to find.

I agree completely, draft to fill needs in organizational depth, not NHL roster depth though.
