I think it makes sense from NJ perspective, as Lou's philosophy has been building from the goal out. A #1 d-man and a potential franchise goalie to step in for Brodeur is right up his alley. They also get the best player in the trade. I think the pick just evens it up a bit.

LA does it and has a lethal top 2 lines, assuming Parise has no lingering injury issues. They also get someone destined to be a top 2 dman, who can step into the lineup right away
Why would the Kings add Bernier and a pick just to get a prospect?

Doughty for Parise straight up is a value for value deal. Good risk/reward for both teams.
