When I say "the value of a move", I mean the score I'll have if I make that move and everyone plays perfectly from then on.

That's totally non-standard. Nobody else means that by the term. What if you are winning by 100 points? The value of filling a dame is then 100 points?!? If that is your definition, then no wonder we disagree.

At least it kind of makes sense if you subtract the value of passing, making the value of filling a dame one point.
