Oh, it absolutely is. But overpayment is the only way they're going to listen, and Drouin is clearly the best offensive player in this draft and would SIGNIFICANTLY bolster our forward corps for both the present and the future.

Henrique is a known value that isn't going to get significantly better (he might get +60 points once or twice, but a 45-55 point guy is what we should expect). And Merrill may very well be an excellent defensemen, but we already have several of those.

It's not about fantasy points or "value" (whatever that is), it's about making the team better for now and the future.
