Way to go, you completely miss the point by telling me something I already knew. You're comprehension skills are off the charts. So off the charts, they're nowhere to be seen.

Now, you might argue over the value of a pick vs another pick, but the matter of the fact is that McD was behind his expected development curve when he got traded, his value wasn't high (in comparison, just to give you an idea, Weber's value is much higher right now than McD was at the time of the trade).

And for now, all he has IS stats comparable to OB's rookie season, to many other rookie D seasons, many of which went through big bumps, and some who never got back on track.

So either way, if you wanna make this about the value of the "1st round pick player" at the time, than McD's value wasn't that high, not high like a Subban or a Weber, and if you wanna make this about McD's value now, well, that's what the OB example is for. To show that we'll have to wait a little while longer before even concluding if the Gomez trade was good or not.
