Like someone else said Bergeron was a 2nd round pick and has now looks like he's going to be better than a lot of guys who were drafted in the first round. Is Alexandre Daigle better than Paul Kariya, Chris Pronger, Jason Arnott, Jason Allison, Saku Koivu, Todd Bertuzzi, Bryan McCabe etc just because he was drafted ahead of all of them in their draft year. You can't jump to conclusions just yet.
Actually.......I was the guy who said Bergeron was a 2nd round pick, lol.....I know what you're saying, but the Perry<Valabik scenario is quite ridiculous.
