The 2014 draft is the important one this one is already done.
You don't need them to make the roster out of camp. You need players available to you if the need arises. If you draft all flyers, they're not going to show up for a game or two when the time comes. They're all-or-nothing.

As for Sanvido - when you're 6'6 230lbs at at 17, you're not going to be a great skater. The kid is a shut-down d-man with a wing span that darn near is the entire zone. I recall him saying he was sick at one point this year, thus his endurance wasn't what he wanted. Give him time. He's going to be good.
