That becomes a matter of choice, as well as where you feel a player will end up developmentally(someone who doesn't like Fowler as a talent, or Murray, is obviously going to pick the other choice).

Asking who you'd choose, Koivu or Sedin, might as well be rhetorical. That isn't about whether you'd pick the complete player or the more one-dimensional offensive talent. It's about whether you want the best player, or the other guy.
The Koivu/Sedin thing wasn't intended to portray Etem as that level just an example of the fact one player can be complete and the other isn't but that doesn't make the latter one a lesser player when in fact he can be a much greater player.
