Johnsson alone was a steal for Lindros. Kim may not be an elite defenseman like Pronger or Lidstrom, but he's not too far off.
Kaberle is a very good defenseman, but I'd pick Johnsson over him. If it was Markov instead, who I love, it makes the deal a no brainer to pick Kim over Danny. As for Antropov, he's good, but Sami Kapanen is a better fit for this team.
Now, if the subsequent deals never happened, well, that's another story...
