That is a big part of why your evaluation is completely off.
It's a valid counterpoint to say you'd rather roll the dice and keep Larsson.
But that's not the actual point.
The actual point is the unknown value of Larsson today can buy the known value of Stepan + Del Zotto today. Is that a good idea for either/both clubs?
You don't trade Larsson for anything else then a prospect of the same caliber.

Devils wouldn't deal a player who is going to be a big part of the future for 2 players today when the team isn't poised for a cup run.

Would be horrible asset management to deal Larsson in the first place. Let alone for that package.
