Guys like Hossa, Havlat, Gaborik, Gagne, Heatley, Kovalchuk, I would never deal for prospects and picks. It is different if you have guys like Andreychuk, Hull, etc... on your roster.

If any of those guys pan out, you win. You orobably still win value wise, but I would not do it.
True, but it depends on the situation too. If Hossa is the only tradeable players on a team that lacks serious depth, it's not a bad deal condisering that Chistov & Vanek have high offensive potential.

quality over quantity
