for

2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 25th (ZM MVP)

That would have been the equivalent

To Team 1: Mario Lemieux, Stefan Person, Gilles Tremblay, Harry Oliver, Gary Dornhoefer

To Team 2: Marcel Dionne, Valeri Vasiliev, Ching Johnson, Lanny MacDonald, scrub

Basically, Team 1 was giving Team 2 the chance to draft 3 more Hall of Famers than any other team in the draft in exchange for the difference between Lemieux and Dionne.
Even in retrospect, it's not THAT bad of a trade, although the obvious winner is team two. Take off Persson and one of Vasiliev and Johnson and I wouldn't mind the deal.
