J.Schultz has proven that he can be a decent option on the PP. We are fine with these 2 plus N.Schultz rounding off the right side.

MTL fans tend to bash on the unproven prospects until the wonder boy Galchenyuk is borught up. Trade Galy for Fowler or Gardiner if puck movers are that valuable.
One problem with that. Gally could (and I truly believe he will), become the most valuable player out of that draft, at least best forward. He's an extremely talented centreman (adds value imo as opposed to wingers), has decent size and great two way ability. In fact, some scouts even believed that Gally is more talented and well rounded than Yakupov. Subban *could* turn out to be a top 5 d-man in the league. Gardiner and Fowler (from my subjective opinion) will never come close to that. Perhaps Fowler for a couple of years, but Subban is simply far and away the better defenseman with much higher potential to boot.

You're not looking at talent level. By your logic, any specific role, say for example a powerforward can have immense value when trading for pieces, rather than basing it on a combination of role + talent + work ethic, etc....
