No doubt Burakowsky > Buchnevich when considering the transfer agreement, but I'm assuming Burakowsky is long gone by the 2nd round.

I think if we are going with safe guys at 25 and 34, guys like Rychel and let's say Heatherington, then I'd love to swing for the fences at 36, and Buchnevich is a big homerun swing. He's a top talent:

In fact I'd say if he wasn't russian, he'd be a top 20 lock.
