Buffalo badly wanted to add size to their top 6 (to their lineup in general) so they drafted Kassian 13th overall in 2009. He spent 2 more years in junior, then split the following year between the AHL and NHL before being traded for an average sized centerman who has no power game to speak of. 4 years later, Kassian is starting to show that he can be an asset on an NHL club. I don't know about you, but I'm not interested in waiting 4 years to fill that need on this club.
Great post, exactly. That's why I would take BPA unless it's extremely obvious we are full to the brim at that position and there's someone more or less the same in value at a needed position.

We shouldn't rely on this year's draft to get us into the playoffs next year.
