Pyatt and Connolly were both top 10 picks who were only a year or two past their draft year. Either player alone had more trade value than the two players you offer would right now. Allen has good potential, but he has been banged up a lot and still hasn't shown he can be a top four dman.

Ryan Kesler may develop, but we are talking about a kid who had 2 goals in 28 games. I'm certainly not saying he won't be a player but the odds aren't really great.
One thing you're not mentioning thought Darth is that the 2004 version of Mike Peca is SUBSTANTIALLY different than the 2001 version you acquired. Peca's offensive production has fallen way off, he doesn't seem to be the physical force that I remember, and he's making $4M per year which seems higher with the CBA upcoming.
