You might see it that way. Personally, I see it it:
Age: Wash, though older is better, not younger, at this stage
Production: Wash, for now. Legwand was on pace for 60+ points, but didn't get it due to injury. Legwand has just as much point/goal potential as Comrie
Size: Legwand, clearly
Upside: Legwand, clearly. Offensivly, they are similar, but Legwand plays a brilliant all-around game, and is already one of the best top-line checkers in the league. His skating blows Comrie's out of the water. Legwand could really be another Mike Modano, whereas I feel Comrie could be another, say, Chris Drury (maybe a little better). See the difference as to how I see it?
Value-wise may be fair, but I still don't think the Preds would deal Legwand for Comrie & Rita alone. I have a feeling they'd ask for significantly more.
