the rough equivalent would be the leafs trading Luke Schenn to us for Anton Volchenkov or Chris Phillips. i know i might get flamed because phillips isn't a "star" like kaberle.

i don't think schenn is as good as phillips right now, but he projects to be as good in a couple of years, if not better. but there's no point to the leafs trading schenn now, because his upside is high.

one of ottawa's biggest weaknesses has been lack of secondary scoring and the pick put them in a position to draft someone who can help with that. let alone we are hoping karlsson will turn into a kaberle type player in a couple of years. right now, all signs point to that being very likely.

the ottawa organization is very high on karlsson, and as good as kaberle is, he's not worth the 1st and karlsson to us.
