- A 1st round pick, likely to be in the bottom 10 of the 1st round. Which sometimes ends up being Perry and Getzlaf, but a lot more often ends up being 3rd or 4th liners.

So, without Lubo the Ducks misses the playoffs, the 2nd round pick going to Boston ends up being in the top 40. So we're trading the #40th pick overall, a 60+ point defenseman with 2 years remaining on his contract after this year, and we get the #25th overall pick and an average 2nd liner. And that's just short term.
Completely agreed. I don't see the value or upside for the Ducks.
