You always take the BPA and that IS looking at the needs of the franchise. The franchise needs good players. It needs good defensemen, forwards and goaltenders.

What if Giroux sustains another concussion or two this coming season? What if Schenn successfully converts to a wing? What if Couturier in spite of our best desires and beliefs never develops beyond a 3C? My point is that predicting your roster 2-4 years out is hard, if not impossible. Rate all your players. Trust your scouts. Take the guy at the top of your list.

Imagine if the Flyers had taken Siemens instead of Couturier as the need would have suggested they do.
