You may be able to do the effort to follow the whole discussion.
It fits in the last two or three pages.

Personnally, despite having long thread, I do not feel lost at all.

We can agree that:
1 year of Horton + 2 years Campbell <<< Widerman + 1st + 3rd

Now if you put this in the context of a team who wants to go for the cup...
It is a gamble: you know you give more in the future to get a lot now.
To me, it was the best trade of 2011...
Chiarelli gave more but has a cup...

Going back to my point: Gomez has a very good value.
I don't understand how you are using Horton as a comparable to Gomez. They are nowhere near similar players. Horton is 5 years younger and much bigger at about 6'2 230lbs. His previous 4 years with FLA he was basically averaging close to 30 goals and 60 points. His last 2 years he missed about 15 games in each season but was still on pace for those stats. He also had 3 years left on his deal at a very reasonable/affordable 4mil per. Just not a good comparable IMO.

As far as Gomez has good value, I think I understand what you are saying. He has good value to MTL because they have no one in the system at this moment to play 2nd line minutes, so MTL is not just going to give him away. But that doesn't mean he has good trade value to other teams.
