Especially in the first round. You draft for need in the middle and late rounds. Period.

If there's a guy who clearly stands out as superior to all others, then yes, go for that guy. But usually, you are ok drafting a few guys.

In 2009, the Rangers were ok with either Erixon or Kreider, but because they needed a scoring forward more than a two-way defenseman, the Rangers went for Kreider. That's what I mean here.

Obviously when the Devils had a chance to draft Larsson, they got him even though they need forwards much more than defensemen. But I'm assuming there won't be such a clear-cut favorite.
