I couldn't disagree more.
I never said that 1st overall picks are always better than later round picks, I said that in recent history 1st overall picks (particularly forwards) have been consistently better than Benn is now at his age. And I backed that up with statistics. But please, continue to straw man if you can't come up with an actual argument.

And the value thing is not really about opinion, so you disagreeing is meaningless. It's pretty much a fact that a player's draft position can impact their value. Now, please don't decide to go the immature route and say, "Oh so [worse player who was drafted higher] is worth mroe than [better played who was drafted lower]?" because all I'm saying is it's definitely a factor, but not the be-all end-all. Do you honestly think Kyle Turris was valued to be worth David Rundblad and a 2nd round pick because of his production at the NHL level? Serious question, please, if you're so sure of yourself, actually dispute my points rather than just dodging them.
