The Oilers are not going to trade #7 overall for an RFA Patrick Berglund. Maybe for a Patrick Berglund that is signed for the next four years ay 3M per or some such, but not RFA.
The premise that Patrick Berglund will be a better NHL player over the next couple of years at least, still stands, I think.
The premise isn't that Berglund is going to be better than a Monahan/Lindholm, that's the conclusion or statement. The premise is the logic you use to defend that statement. In this case the premise was "It doesn't matter until they prove themselves". I said that the premise was wrong because it excludes all prospects as they all need to prove thing at the NHL level.

Rather, I would say that the likelihood of the particular (Monahan/Lindholm) developing into a second line center that doesn't surpass Berglund to be very unlikely.
