Josh Gratton and 2 2nd Round Picks for Denis Gauthier
Joni Pitkanen (former 1st) and Geoff Sanferson for Jason Smith and Joffrey Lupul
1st round Pick for Steve Eminger
Steve Eminger and Steve Downie (former 1st) for Matt Carle
Scottie Upshall and 2nd Round Pick for Daniel Carcillo

Were all gross overpayments. You could even argue that Holmgren overpaid for Pronger, by opting to send Lupul there. I mean, did the Ducks really need a 4+ million dollar Lupul with Selanne on the books, and Ryan looking for a raise? Of course not. He could have saved a first by sending Lupul to the Preds for whatever, and moving the rest for Pronger, since the Ducks were mainly looking for cap-space in the deal.
