The draft is still 95% about adding VALUE. That's where the whole BPA comes in.

Obviously if you see a 6'4" guy and Petan as equals and you need more big vs small payers in your system you take the big guy...BUT...if at some point in the draft Petan is far and away the BPA you take him without an ounce of hesitation. If he becomes a potential NHL impact player then you can easily swap him for a player better than the big guy you could have drafted instead.

Do you think the Flyers could trade Giroux for a "big/mobile d-man" better than Fischer if they wanted? I know it's an extreme situation but it still applies.
