I don't know how the Avs rank the BPA between the forwards and D in this draft, but unless O'Reilly brings back a center, and the Avs miss out on Jones or McKinnon, I feel like the circumstances are so dire with Stastny's deal expiring soon, that picking a center like Monahan may outweigh the BPA approach. If he's not the BPA anyway that is, I haven't seen enough to tell, but he's ranked behind a few guys right now.

That's also if it's close, not if they think a guy like Barkov or Drouin is gonna be a superstar, and Monahan will never approach anything resembling Couturier.

Monahan could slip like Couturier did too. Especially since he won't be showcasing himself in the playoffs with the 67's being last place in the league.
