If we want a centre then we pay the price to move up to a position where the BPA is a centre we rate. None of us know if we attempted to do that or not.

As for the players being 3+ years away... considering the current make up of the Blues team and prospects then that has actually worked out well.
There were people disappointed that the Blues took Pietrangelo because he was considered the farthest of the top few picks from being ready to contribute.

I totally agree....you take the best player available. Period.
