You know what the most valuable thing in terms of prospects is? Goal scoring. You can't teach that. You can teach guys to play defense though, but you just can't teach that natural goal scoring ability. That's why the goalscorers generally go first on draft day, and defensemen can come from just about anywhere in the draft.
So Erik Johnson is more valuable than Jonathan Toews?

Comes down to who is more valuable to the Bruins right now, and Hamilton is worth more than Yakupov would be.
