Granted, but I listed the percentages just for the sake of the argument. Just as a general theory. It's the same way that some organizations prefer size, some prefer speed, some prefer defense, some prefer run-and-gun. Obviously all these teams prefer "the best players", but different people view different things as best.
The same for drafting strategy. What's best is not something that everyone agrees on. Obviously if another McIlrath is clearly the best player available, let's get another McIlrath. But whether McIlrath is better than Fowler is a matter of philosophy and preferences.
As a strictly philosophical exercise, would we prefer a guy who has a 50-50 chance of becoming another Dubinsky or someone who has a 20-80 chance of becoming Giroux?
