Right but it wasn't a trade on even terms. Teams knew the Hawks were in salary dump mode and had the Hawks by the balls. Stalberg had 43 points in 14 minutes a game last year, Versteeg had 44 in 16 minutes a game during the Cup season. I think they did ok.

If Patrick Kane had 88 points instead of 66 points last year and if Toews plays 82 games instead of 59, people would remember Stalberg more like Versteeg because the team would be winning a hell of a lot more.
