It's an overpayment.
Generally speaking and certainly in this case, the difference in player at #1 and #7 is going to be fairly wide. Aren't we in a trade this pick for something that can help now mode? I would say Berglund fits that bill almost to a tee. Stick Gagner and Yakupov on 2L Wing positions?

Berglund Yakupov Gagner
Horcoff Paajarvi Hemsky
