I look at Schenn/8th overall (Couturier) and Voracek/Simmonds as basically interchangeable parts in the Richards/Carter deals, since both deals were so similar in structure.

The reason I care is because recent deals gives us a baseline for player trade values.

Would you have traded Mike Richards for Bobby Ryan this summer? The value doesn't make sense. I don't think you're giving Schenn his due as a valuable asset, and you're ignoring the ramifications of adding Ryan to the roster and his cap hit to the payroll structure while losing Schenn.
