I don't get the logic- If I'm supposed to pick the BPA (say Jones at 1) why would I trade him to get the BPA (say Lindholm at 6) at a lower level but not chose a guy who is the next BPA (say Mackinnon at 2) but happens to be a forward. I think you buy into that theory way too much. The throw in for that kind of a deal (2nd rounder) is probably a pick where the odds of them being successful are much less.

PS I used the top guys to illustrate a point because I know their names and relative positions not to advocate giving up Jones to get Lindholm.

Probably an agree to disagree situation.
