So overall on balance
Hedman and McDonagh are both high premium value.

So if McD is close enough to Hedman and Hedman is close enough to a first, what does that tell you?

Obviously, we have years where a GENERATIONAL talent comes up in that slot. McK's stature is not there yet, is it?

So answer to your ?, that's one way I measure it.
Even with your flawed analogy, you've answered your own question. Overall Hedman is better, better, better but (and) younger. That the reason for the current difference in performance.

So why does the team drafting 1st overall trade it for a "better today, but not later" type of player?

They don't.
