MacT will likely be trading one of our 'best players available' to fill a gaping need. We shall see what all you 'BPA, everytime, no matter what' disciples think then. I suspect many of you are the same people as the 'you just don't trade a player like that, ever' crowd. Tambellini has one of them.
ugg, i can't even believe i'm responding to this, but here goes

yes, you still ALWAYS pick the BPA... because even if you don't end up with a player that fits your team need (such is arguably the case with yakupov) you still end up with the best player... by having the best player, you have the most valuable trading chip from that draft, which can be cashed in for a player that fits your team need

i can't believe this still needs to be pointed out (over and over and over and over and over)
