- Luongo and Jokinen for Parrish and Kvasha

That's way worse than the Gomez deal. McD will be good, but I don't see him in the Chara/Luongo category. Then add Jokinen, who was decent for Florida, and Spezza...
The Gomez deal was awful, but we did not trade a franchise player, maybe not even an allstar player. There are many more lopsided trades in the history of the game (Naslund for Stojanov, Neely for Pederson, Hull for Ramage, Roy to Colorado, Esposito to Boston, Hasek to BUF for spare parts...)
