If the players are close, then sure. But as Jimmi Jenkins said, you don't pass on Kane for JVR just to address size
but he's not. and we drafted Drouin, first overall last year. and yes you do pass on Kane if you already have 3 Kanes and 0 JVRs!!!!!!! And its doubtful Drouin will be as good as Kane who tore up the O, not the Q; big difference. besides, if they draft Drouin, think how many of you, with your man-crush for Eberle, will be broken hearted when he is traded for the need that Drouin didn't fill (not to mention that, if he's as good as Kane, then he's better than Eberle). that would be funny to see all those man-tears.

bingo. immediate need. all this draft attention in the last few years has made too many of you forget that you are supposed to try and win, every year, not in some obscure future. the present is just as important as the future.
