People make much too big a deal about BPA. All teams have different rankings. Whoever the Flyers take at #11 will be the guy who they deem "BPA" at that spot. If that is someone that CSS has ranked at #20, who are we to judge whether or not he is the true best player available?

People made a big deal when we took Laughton last year. Turns out the Flyers scouts had a pretty good hunch on him.

The fact is that very little separates most of these players at this stage. Unless a first tier prospect drops to #11, we have very little knowledge to judge considering most (probably all) of us have not watched nearly enough of every player that we could potentially pick.
