So which is it guys?
There is no way that Teubert and Lewis for example...were the BPA. None at all.
No this is wrong. I specifically remember in his first year with the Kings, Lombardi said normally you select the best player available, but this team was so thin in defensive prospects they had no choice but to pick defenseman with their first pick for the first couple years. He always said when you build a team, you start with the goalie, then defense, then forwards. Now that some of those holes are filled on D with Hickey, Teubert, Voynov, Muzzin, Martinez, Forbert etc, they can now go back to drafting the BPA.
