Considering draft picks take 3-5 years to pan out, you don't draft on need.

There still is not valid reasoning nor proof that Garth and co wouldn't select a European-based player in the 1st round, as they've already selected a European (Niederreiter) and have selected several from Europe in the 2nd (Pokka, Sundstrom, Koskinen) and later rounds (Ullstrom, Nilsson).
