DW has done a decent job of dumping poor players while they still had high value from "potential", with Bernier being the poster boy.

Two mistakes player-wise that I can think of where there was a sell and the player went on to improve later: Gorges and Carle. Maybe you include Michalek in there since he was able to overcome his injuries and play great this year.

The picks are unknowns since you never know who the Sharks might have drafted. But if you look at the 1st rounders grabbed from the Guerin and Campbell deals... David Perron and Tyler Ennis. Ouch.
