Oh and is Brewer worth more then

1998 - Byan Allen
1999 - Pavel Brendl
2000 - Rostislav Klesla
2001 - Stephen Weiss

I would say so. A #4 isn't a sure fire thing. No pick ever is, they shouldn't be treated as such. For all we know Barker is the next Pronger. Or he could never play in the NHL. That is why Brewer is worth more the the #4. He is proven and is one of the better young d-men in the league. I personally would rank him between Redden (higher then Brewer ) and Morris (lower then Brewer)
To clarify something, I am not a Blue Jackets fan. I'm a Blues fan.

Now that that's out of the way...

The value of the #4 pick is going to be based on the preceived potential of that pick and in most cases, an organization is going to think that they can get a potential franchise player with that pick and isn't going to trade it for a player like Brewer unless, of course, that team think Brewer has the potential to be a franchise player (which I don't).
