Not how any organisation should base decisions on. Need has merit in specific situations whereby you are incredibly strong in one area, and the other availabilities are similar in percieved worth. You don't not draft a player simply due to two promising but unestablished young players ; players who aren't comparable to Jones in many ways. If the Panther scouts belueve Jones is the best player available, you don't pass up on him because of Gudbranson/Petrovic.

Or to put it more simply ; you don't pass up on a potential two way impact defenseman because you have two solid, projectable, but somewhat unspectacular defenseman who happen to grip the stick the same way.

I would actually prefer us to go Forward too, but it has nothing to do with relatively unproven assets in our organisation.
