In any case, I think it will be telling to see how Schultz and Gilbert are used by their respective teams from here on. Gilbert was used in a bigger role in Edmonton than Schultz was in Minnesota. If their careers continue in that way despite switching places, I think it will be obvious who is the better defenseman.If that is true, then even if you believe Schultz is the better "fit," then Edmonton should have gotten an additional piece in return to equilibrate the difference in value.
And if the reverse is true, then what?

I would really sit down with, as you seem to hold it as the quintessential measurement of individual performance, and objectively look for the inherent flaw in using advanced stats as a measure of a single player's quality. (HINT: Hockey isn't baseball...)
