It's also difficult to draw a comparison between a Buekeboom-type and a Bure-type - each brings different things to a team and those needs have varying weight depending on the players that are complimenting each. Some teams would need the Buekeboom more than the Bure and that's really where the value in the pick lies.
This team is deep ion defense and not in forwards. Hence we're not one of those teams.
