Lucky then that it is extremely likely that the BPA will be a winger or D man!

Kempe, Bleakley and Mccann are the only centres I reckon have a shot of going in the 10-20 range... while there are probably 5-10 wingers and 4 D men who could easily go in that range. (Schmaltz, Larkin and Barbashev all play wing as well, even though some places list them as exclusively centres.) I think Mccann will surely be gone by the time the Flyers pick as well, and Bleakley will likely be in the 20-30 range... so Kempe is probably the only true centre who will be in that range and a likely BPA... and he has played LW as well.

That being said... if Nylander fell, take the guy, though I cannot see him falling that far... and he also plays wing!

I almost forgot that if the Debs finish behind us we move up a spot in the draft as well effectively! Nice.
