Quite likely you're dealing a top 5 NHL pick for 2nd round picks and if you historically look at the OHL draft there is a better caliber of player selected in the 1st round compared to the 2nd round. This is why Ottawa would be better off keeping Monahan.
I'm not disagreeing that quality players are tougher to find in the second round, but you said "never", which isn't true.
