Very different circumstances, but I'm not even sure of what you're trying to prove here. If anything that would make Braun worth more, as he's on a great contract and Schenn's on a horrid one.

I know, one's an overage 7th round draft pick and one was picked 5th overall, but that has quite little to do with their current respective values.

Braun is the better player by every measure minus physicality. He's a great skater, he's got strong offensive instincts, and he did rather well playing quite a bit in the defensive zone. He forced his way up the Sharks' depth chart and earned the #4 spot on one of the best bluelines in the league. Whereas Luke Schenn struggled to crack one of the worst bluelines in the league.

But yeah, draft pedigree, woo.
