But I am serious.

Seguin is just overrated and the top forwards in this draft are underrated. This draft was considered weak and is emerging as quite the opposite

And how can you know for certain that Strome won't be as good as Seguin? I am sure you never though Jeffrey Skinner would have a better year than your first overall pick Hall... which I even called before the draft. That's because I have watched him play throughout almost his entire junior career in Kitchener. Kid's the real deal.

He has a fantastic work-ethic aswell. I'd maybe consider taking Strome > Seguin aswell but I most likely wouldn't.

I have seasons tickets to the Rangers and Knights and I also travel to go to other games and I have seen Seguin play numerous of times and he is just a fast goal scoring centre. Decent passing ability, not good defensively, and he may be fairly big but he doesn't use it often enough. Not to mention he disappears in important games. Hall was the obvious choice for first overall in my mind and Edmonton made the right choice.
