With my first two forward picks being Sedin & Sedin, I think A, PPP and +/- were covered. Drafting Thornton might have been overkill. At that point, I wanted a bit more G, SOG, Hits and a winger. I knew I could depend on later picks to provide plus/minus, in this case Peverley and Hamhuis. Assists is easily covered and hoping Minnesota's PP flourishes (Heatley / Suter).
Like you mentioned, to each their own!
