I still find that BPA just for public consumption--teams claim that is how they pick.
But, in practice that is not always the case on how the actually pick.
They just state so-and-so was the BPA on their draftboard.
The Flyers minors system lacks good quality offensive minded defensemen.
This team needs to fill areas of need with highly rated prospects, not just stockpile centermen.
If there was an offensive defensman I rated as 12-15 best player available, and a
center who was 1-10, I am taking the defenseman.
Its not a reach!!!
I am taking the BPA for the future of the team, which is a defenseman.
I am not suggesting you take the 30th rated player a defenseman at 11,
but if the ratings are close, I pick the defenseman.
I hope all the centers go 1-10 because if BPA is a center, I think I will have a migrane.
In fact if BPA is a center, I say trade the #11 pick for a young established PMD.
Have no need or desire for anymore centers.
To me, BPA can be a viable strategy to good teams picking in the 22-30 range who have more flexibility to improve their team
