Do we have plenty of goal scoring forwards in our prospect pool? Didn't think so. So again, are they addressing the right problem?

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.
