He's considered to be the best prospect in this draft and fills a need here.

You don't draft because people are lighting up CHL. You draft who will be the best at 25. Forwards, especially with pure offensive skills, always look relatively better in their draft year than defenders do (unless they play like a fourth forward like Murphy or Ellis).

With the caliber of consolation prizes this year, there is no reason to freak out. Avs could pick fifth overall and still get a good player.
