Would you have traded the 1st for Brouwer?

Note that Brouwer is 25 years old RFA, a 6'3" 215 lbs winger who scored 20 goals a season on average the last couple of years. He has 4 fighting majors and 262 hits last year.
Would you have done it?
I voted no...Brouwer is not that good of a player. I jwould have drafted McNeill. Or may have traded down to acquire a 2nd round pick, then drafted with Biggs, Connor Murphy or Puempel. Something like that.
