You should NOT draft a player with the notion that he might be good trade bait sometime down the line with your 1st round pick in a draft. In any case, there are more than 25 guys who are beter than Petan in this draft, so it should not be a problem for us at #25.
Perry wasn't in the same draft as Giroux.

I know Giroux-Fischer is an extreme example, I said so in my original message...but the point remains you don't pass on a potential 30 goal scorer for a 6'2" 3rd line grinder just because you NEED one. Swing for the fences in the draft and get the depth guys by trade or UFA.
