Given the choice between overpaying Brunner due to a bidding war(as it appears Brunner wants to test the market) or Alfie in this instance I pick Alfie.
But if you are asking me do we trade a pick for Alfie or draft Sequin, Hall, Stamkos, etc...
I take the draft pick.
See I am not assigning my logic to all situations, I use logic based on the individual circumstance.
I know that may seem weird to some, but I actually look at each transaction as a one off situation, there is no fix all tool.
Edit: This is response to Dirty Dangle, the gap between our posts was bigger than I thought it would be!

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."
“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
