I think both players are under valued because they haven't had a chance to develop into the players they were projected to be, when each team drafted them. Although Lewis was a first round draft pick, i think he is projected to be a third line center, that will be a good forechecker, play a solid defensive game and chip in with roughly 20 goals a year. He was compared to a poor man's brindamour when he was scouted.
I don't see lombardi trading away an unproven asset, for another unproven asset. It really doesn't make sense for either team, unless they are parts of a bigger deal....

Such as,

To Van/
Cammelerri
Lewis
Dallas 1st Rd Pick

To La
Bieksa
Bourdon
