The second and third rounds might be a better place to pick up a centre though. Guys like John Hayden (2nd round) and Marko Daňo (3rd) could well be better value pick ups.

We always say it though, pick the best player available. The end of next season and we might be moving a winger for futures in order to create space for Jaškin/Rattie... that is a time we could look to address any areas of weakness within our set-up.
Well dang, I thought Nichushkin was primarily a center. Is it just me, or do a lot of players/prospects start out as centers but move to wing?

I'm with you on BPA...I was just thinking about how nice it would be if our BPA was a center. Should be an interesting draft, especially since the whole thing will be done in one day. I wonder how long the 1st round will take (as long as previous drafts? I kind of hope so, as I like the analysis of each pick).
