Not really. We are not a season or two in the future right now. Obviously things can and do change, at times dramatically, over such a time. With Kuznetsov, there obviously is a chance that he has more value than Ryan two years in the future. But as of today, that's only a chance, and then there's a chance of him not being more valuable, just like another chance that he further delays coming over. These are all factors in the evaluation today, resulting in what Sojourn said - that it would be entirely unrealistic to expect Anaheim to add to Ryan in a deal around these two today. The possibility that the Ducks would have to add two years in the future doesn't change that, at all.

It's pretty obvious who's the better bet to be a long term solution as a #2C.
Players, or rather humans, have different development paths. Johansson likely is the safer bet, but that comparision at this point in their respective careers doesn't exactly mean too much.
