He got value for Ladd. A 3rd Line Winger on a stacked team that had no choice than trade this player still got a mid 2nd Round Pick and a former 1st Rounder that wanted to play in NA but wasn't good enough.

That return was fair for both sides at that time.

and which team would have given us a top young player for all the players we had to shed. All GMs hoped for a bargain with Buff, Versteeg or Ladd. Bowman did a good job getting good value back for them. Just go back to that time and check the threads on the main board. Most were surprised what return we got because everybody knew that we had no other choice
