You're being a bit sensitive.

Of course Lupul didn't produce at the same rate at the same age in Philly--he didn't play here at the same age. His 22 year-old season in Anaheim (28 goals, 25 assists, 53 points) was better than anything JVR has done here, so to suggest that age alone explains the production gap seems a bit suspect.

Regardless, I think a reasonable argument can be made that they have approximately similar values--JVR perhaps has more potential, Lupul had a superior track record. The key point, I guess, is that Sbisa was a far better prospect than Gus is now, and Weber will probably cost more than Pronger did then.

Trust me, if we can persuade Nashville to take JVR, Gustaffson, and a pair of late 1sts for Weber, I'd be thrilled. I just don't see it happening.

At least I was consistent in misspelling the guy's name? I have some posts to edit...
