You are right about one thing the difference in the draft pick is quite a bit. There are still some promising young talents around at the 17th pick but the talents around at the 10 spot are better.

Pyatt is a fourth liner on any team not starved for forward depth. He might have third line upside but nothing more. Lombo carries a helluva lot more upside than does Pyatt. Lombo already plays to a level that Pyatt will never exceed.

All in all the values are about equal.

Almost everything in this post is dead wrong.
