shouldnt we be ranking by "value"... like if we were to trade these guys to another team?

Value is determined by ceiling (potential) accomplishments (proven) and talent.
I kind of agree with you because if you get a veteran fourth liner you don't have to worry about a rookie taking time to adjust to the nhl and making stupid mistakes. However, having players in your system make the 4th line isn't a bad idea either, Darroll Powe turned out fine.
