Was Phillips the best goal scorer (and you must keep the intent of the team to be a more up-tempo squad in mind) with the mix of mobility available at #28? I would argue there were other options that better fit that paradigm than Zack Phillips.
Obviously the Wild go best player available rather than drafting for need.
