Isn't that exactly what I said? "have the chance to be as good or better" and that it's too early to say. I don't see how it's hard to understand my statement.

What I mean is that right now all of those guys "appear" to be in the conversation, together, of who could be the best player from that group. And at the same time, I guarantee you that if you polled scouts right now, some may say they would keep Brodin, and some may already say that they'd rather have Trouba, Rielly, Lindholm or someone else on that list. We're talking about 18 to 20 year old guys who are 6 months to 2.5 years removed from being drafted. It's too early to say anything definitive yet.

Nobody is holding a gun to Fletcher's head saying you have to make a decision on a trade right now. This is a hypothetical discussion about who may be the best player to emerge from the last 3 drafts.
