Without Gillies' defense. But you're right, his mix of heavyweight fighting and not-terrible offense is Gillieseque

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.
Tkachuk is a fine pick, but he had an absurd amount of ENGs the season he led the league in goal scoring.
