Desharnais is good, but he's not Sidney Crosby.
It is a matter of organizational depth though isn't it? If you clearly have a glaring need for a particular type of player in your prospect pool, shouldn't that affect the draft? I mean, not looking only at current team needs.

I'd say that if the gap is small between the BPA and the player that best addresses your need, you draft that player. If the gap is huge, draft BPA. I believe there is some room to maneuver here.
