So they'd have 4 BPA's at this point and this is where a team goes for need, in the Habs case a big center so they'd go for Scheifele or Miller here.
Now assume Beaulieu is ranked B+ and is available, a team with such a system will draft him even if they are stacked on D.
But going BPA is essential, these picks are assets too, going by need shouldn't make you take risky compromises.
Well obviously if Beaulieu and Bartschi are available I'd take them before anyone on my list--i'm just assuming they won't be there. And I like both Scheifele and Miller--i just prefer what the guys on my list can offer to the team down the road.
