Most EQUAL Trade This Year
 
Since there are many threads questioning the most lopsided trades, I decided to create a thread about the most equal trades this year. In your opinion, what was the most EQUAL trade this year (aka. trades benefiting both teams) IMO: the Heatley for Hossa and de Vries trade was the most equal because it was basically a swap of high scorers that has benefited both sides, as well as given Atlanta some defensive depth (though they DEFINITELY need more).

Comments?

PS. Is this suppose to go to the NHL Talk section? If so, please move it.

The Thorton trade is turning out to be pretty fair IMO.

unless your being sarcastic (which most people tend to be when they talk about that trade) i agree. I think it worked out great for both teams so far.

Until one of those teams is in position for a playoffs spot, I have difficulty saying that it's worked out great for either.

The Leclerc Rhino swap. Total latteral move.

Nova_Scotia_Vees 02-13-2006 11:21 AM

Bruins still are not scoring. yeah they are getting key goals from Sturm but the hot streak that they are on has more do do with the play of Tim Thomas more then anything

Heatley + DeVries for Hossa has worked out better for the Senators, but I'm sure the Thrashers like having Hossa as well.

Seidenberg has 5 assists and is -6 in 12 games with Phoenix, but is 25 years old.
Nedved has 1 goal and 4 assists and -2 in 8 games with Philly, and is 35 with another year at over $2 million on contract. Nedved has also missed 3 games with his aggrevated groin injury since the trade.

I'm not saying Phoenix burnt Philly on this deal, but so far I would give the slight advantage to Phoenix for getting a solid young blueliner for an overpaid and injured vet.

Has it though? I mean, the salary exchange was very useful for them and obviously Heatley has been great. But Hossa has been every bit as good in Atlanta. Plus, Atlanta really needed a guy like Devries on their defense -- in fact, could probably use another guy like him. Also, adding the experience of these two players has been very useful for a young team, who could've easily been out of it early but are now fighting for a playoffs spot. Plus, the salary issue wasn't really a concern for the Thrashers as they still have a good amount of room left.

I'd say that trade's about as fair as it gets, both teams got exactly what they wanted out of it.

I wouldn't call Seidenberg "solid," exactly. I think he is talented but inconsistent. He really showed flashes in '03-'04, but the streakiness got under Hitchcock's and Clarke's skin. If Nedved can stay healthy and provide some decent secondary scoring, I'd call this trade pretty even.

What solid young blueliner did Phoinex acquire. If you have seen Seidenberg play ,which it looks like you havenít, you would not say he is a solid young blueliner. Nedved has been ok except takes some bad penalties. He has helped the pp however.We may never know how he is going to fit in until he is playing with set linemates, Forsberg needs to come back for that to happen

Dave Scatchard for David Tanabe.

We got our 3rd line center when we traded our 1st line center to San Jose.

Tanabe has also been a good #5-6 D-Man. Before he came here Boston had the worst blueline in the NHL. Adding B. Stuart and having Boynton step up his game has really helped.

Not sure that is true. Hossa has been a phenominal 2-way player and DeVries has been quite effective too. If Atlanta had Heatley would he have many more points on Atlanta than Hossa? And they wouldn't have Devries. Atlanta's problems this year are not because of this trade.

Namso 02-13-2006 09:01 PM

Hossa and Devries for Heatley is pretty good.

AEKaki 02-13-2006 11:36 PM

Eric Boguniecki for Steve Poapst

I mean, Boguniecki with the Pens will be a big time player for many years to come and Steve Poapst will win the Norris trophee in St-Louis.

:biglaugh:

Honestly now, the Heatley for Hossa-deVries trade was awesome...

Greek_physique 02-13-2006 11:46 PM

G.Sanderson and Tim Jackman for C.Hulse, M.Rupp and Jason Chimera.

or

Peca for York and pick.

Boucher/Leclerc for Reinprecht/Sauve

I wouldn't say the Atlanta/Ottawa trade, I'd take Hossa over Heatley anyway plus the Thrashers got deVries too.
