I judge a draft by end results, not by who was academically the best pick at the time.
Do you really think that when picking players in the draft the organization does not take into account who they have on the NHL roster and in the pipeline? My bet would be team's make their lists/boards/whatever based on, among other things, what their organization needs.
Not all teams use the BPA theory, and the Flyers apparently use it only in the 1st round.
