<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>OldNYIfan</b></div><div>The draft table I consult has a completely different evaluation of the respective values of the 14th and 23rd picks (which is what CapFriendly currently says, and I don't bother checking their accuracy) than yours so no, my trade does not value Jones and Khaira as the equivalent of a "mid-second."</div></div>

It's not "my" draft list, I'm referring to the NHL on this. They're the ones that decide, remember? And yes, <a href="/users/CapFriendly" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@CapFriendly</a> is wrong on this and have been for weeks/months. NHL made the decision to use points percentage for draft position a while ago. Capfriendly is wrong: at this moment Florida holds the 17th pick and Edmonton the 20th. Obviously these numbers will change to reflect play-in and playoff results.

You refer to a "draft table", are you looking at a draft pick value chart? Because most of those don't reflect reality either. When I state that the cost to move up 3 spots in the middle of the 1st round is a mid-2nd, that's based on actual trades:

In 2018 NYR moved up to #22 for the cost of #26 and #48.
In 2017 DAL moved up to #26 for the cost of #29 and #70.
In 2015 PHI moved up to #24 for the cost of #29 and #61.
In 2015 CLB moved up to #29 for the cost of #34 and #68.

And now you're moving the goalposts. Your original post that I responded to was clearly talking about Ethan Bear, now you're trying to switch that to Caleb Jones?
