That's not what I am doing. I am questioning why unproven high picks are constantly seen to be valued at what their potential ceilings could be, whereas much more proven equally high picks with lots of potential unrealized upside is seen for what they have done in the NHL so far.

...and I am saying, as a Managing Director of a Consultancy company, that this is not how risk/reward equations are typically done in business.
