Hard to suck worse than a lineup almost entirely fueled by rookies and injured vets.
In reality the pick the package requested by Boston last year was supposedly Hemsky plus Eberle...so that's pretty well the starting point Boston would want. A player with roughly the same level of skill as Hemsky and a blue chip prospect (non franchise; though face of franchise is the same). Sequin has the potential to be a slightly better Spezza IMO. He's got a ways to go but he could easily be a franchise player and is a big center who makes those around him better, and you just don't trade players like that away unless it's a significant overpayment (especially when you consider cap budgets and production/potential vs pay).
Don't expect that just b/c Boston is deep in Center they'll move Seguin first. They could very easily move Krejci or with some work Savard and adjust lineups accordingly. Just because you're deep with centers doersn't mean you'll move the best C prospect you have. Probably cheaper to try for Colborne as he COULD be the odd man out for young centers with Seguin, Bergeron, Krejci, and Savard on ice.
You could have just said a much simpler answer: The Devils are winning out and getting to the playoffs.
