You're undervaluing the pick. Gudbranson isn't proven. Neither is Huberdeau (though he is very close).

The chances of a 1st overall draft pick being a great player are much higher than either of these two becoming stars.

If I am Tallon I don't make that trade for Yakupov or Hall or Kane (I might make it for RNH or Tavares). But if you're not willing to pay that price you won't get a likely franchise player (that you likely keep under contract for the better part of a decade).
