Schenn was an unproven prospect, and Simmonds is now another year into his career. Values change, and when players step into the NHL and prove themselves, the way Schenn did, they change pretty quickly. Both of those players are worth more than they were prior to the trade.

Furthermore, both of those players are key players in Philadelphia now, where that wasn't the case in Los Angeles. Would you give up two key roster players for Bobby Ryan? I sure wouldn't.
