With the minor caveat that we have two C who are better than any forward that has ever played for Nashville in the franchise's short history, and more forward depth than that team has ever had. In which case, drafting like Nashville North... probably not a bad idea as long as we keep most of that offensive talent signed for several years.

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.
