If Drouin is head and shoulders better than the next guy available, you'd be foolish to pass on him because of need. What happens if we trade for Lucic and then sign Horton?(not saying it'll happen) Suddenly we won't need grit, and Drouin will bring a much better return than say Nurse or Monahan. If the players are close, then sure. But as Jimmi Jenkins said, you don't pass on Kane for JVR just to address size
