The Joikinen deal doesn't look that great to me. Lombardi has blinding speed but the jury is still out if he will ever become an effective top 6 player. Prust, well, tough guys that aren't that tough and who already have a pretty major concern about concussions, aren't worth much. And that first rounder? 20th? Later? Sure it's an asset but history shows that it's more likely to be a marginal player than a star.
And all that for a legitimate #1 centre with good size. These 3 for 1 trades almost always just mean you are diluting a hard to get asset into 3 assets that anybody can get. I think Sutter won this trade.
