Personally I'd rather have Tkachuk. Much better longevity, and honestly I think his peak is more impressive too. Has a Richard, without Lemieux clearly boosting his totals. Stevens has 3 50 goal seasons in the middle of a high scoring era, Tkachuk has two in a low scoring era. Stevens was probably a better playmaker but I honestly have no idea how much of that was boosted by Lemieux.
(That's a very quick analysis with me being in class I go into more detail later)
By no means do I see Stevens as a bad pick where he was taken, especially by Mad with Lemieux. I just can't see the 60 pick difference between the two.
