Is this the most lopsided trade ever?

Not at all. Look at how bad Philly was before Lindros got there.
H2H, only Forsberg is comprable to Lindros.
Hextall cost them the 1993 ADSF and was on the Isles the next season
Duchense was very good but traded for Garth Butcher after one season in QC
Ricci was a very good role player but Philly had Rod Brindamour who was better
Simon was a 3rd liner at best
Huffman, Thibeualt and Baumgartner never really amounted to anything special for Colorado
Lindros was one of the most dominant players in the NHL, as was Forsberg. Both players had a great impact on their new organizations.
You wanna see lopsided?:
Mark Messier for Bernie Nicholls, Louie Debrusk and Steven Rice, or Yashin for Spezza and Chara come to mind.
