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
That's a HUGE no from NJ. For Doughty, I'd trade one of Parise or Larsson - not both. The values of Parise and Doughty are pretty equal, although NJ would have to add A LITTLE BIT. Adding Larsson is far too much.
