The difference between 20g, 50p winger and 35g,70p winger is pretty big, especially given that Ryan brings much more physicality.

That 1st rounder is pretty late one, it's not like you're trading a top10 pick.

Personally I think Voracek, Meszaros and Flyers 1st is not fair value for Ryan.
Mezsaros turns 27 in October. That draft pick won't likely be top-10, but it could be around 20 again.

Agree to disagree, I guess. I just don't see past precedents in which a player of Ryan's caliber returned two good, young NHL players as well as a 1st. (Voracek is a clear tier above Dubinsky / AA--who are closer to Mezsaros' level).
