I never thought I'd say this, but no, I don't think you NEED to squat. In my opinion, is squatting prefered? Yes, by a long shot, but (I think Stuart McRobert said something like this) if there is some sort of physical limitation or lack of equipment, then leg presses are a very reasonable substitute. I use them in my own routine (which also includes squats).
