We gave up a ton for Ryan, in your words, yet Dallas didn't give up anything for Spezza?
The deals are pretty similar. People just see "first round pick" and get all tingly in their jibblies.
Chiasson = Silfverberg
2nd round pick pretty much = Stefan Noesen
Then we got two prospects, and they got one out of the first rounder. None of these guys may pan out, who knows.
That's one way of looking at it, but the more realistic way is that Silfverberg, Noesen and a 1st was VERY valuable at the time they were traded. Much more so than the package we got IMO.
