Same reason why Minnesota doesn't need a goaltender. Doesn't fit their needs and while it might be a top 18 player, not the BPA...

I don't believe in the BPA theory at all, but would rather draft a player needed for our long term needs....And a future 3rd liner with limited potential offensively is hardly what we need.

Calgary will take a Green or Valabik if they drop because it gives them room to trade a d-man for the scoring winger they truly need, one that can step in sooner rather then later.

Atlanta may pick Schwarz at #10 if the guys they want are gone because they can trade him for their needs.

That's what the BPA theory is, take him and then if you don't fill a hole with him you can trade to fill a hole. You never know, somebody could get a career ending injury or you could pull a blockbuster trade and your needs instantly change.

"Needs" and "BPA" are mutually exclusive. If a goaltender is the highest player on their list come their pick then he's the "best player available". If you start factoring in needs then it's no longer the BPA.
