You can't really use the draft to address needs at a position as specific as wing. These kids take several years to develop to the point where they will make an impact on the team. By then other prospects can step in (Korpikowski) or we could deal other players or prospects (Montoya) for areas of need. If the best available player at our pick just happens to be a LW then great. If not, no worries about lacking prospects for that position.
