Wingers are at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to positions of value of equal players.

Defensemen always ranked as are more important positional needs to teams than wingers do.. A good center can turn an average winger into a good one statistically.

If you trade a Dman straight for a Winger of equal value in a hockey trade then the team getting the the higher ranking position already has a leg up on the trade.

We're not making this up on pure opinion, as this same concept has been around the NHL for the long time. Look at the recent Suter & Parise signings as a example of DMan and Winger.. Both have identical contracts while Suter was a 7 goal 46 point dman getting paid $98 mil and Parise has been a 40 goal 85-95 point winger and earned the same amount. Same earning potential so same relative value, but unequal point production..
