If we look at the 1st overalls (forwards only) since 2001 (Kovy), all but one (Nugent-Hopkins) scored 20+ goals in their first year. All had 40+ points, two (Hall, Stamkos) had >50 points.
But you're trading a 20+ minute defenseman in Green, a likely 50+ point forward in Johansson along with the two firsts.

It's an abysmal value.
