BPA. I'm a believer the older I get. Especially in the lower half of the first round. Also a believer in trading up though, if we're stacked and we can move a couple picks to get one really talented F. Not a believer in drafting a winger just because it happens to be our least deep position. Shero has shown you can fill gaps with decent wingers in FA most years (if you're in a pinch). And because we'll never be drafting early enough to get someone who will be NHL ready right away, even more reason not to draft a winger unless a winger is BPA at our slot.
