At this point in time Franzen = Jbo in terms of impact to a team so essentially you are trading Gus+Quincey for Babchuk. You can't tell me a sub 4 million 30 goal/50 points is not worth Jbo as he currently stands. Franzen may look like a worse contract in a few years but from the current standpoint the value is way lopsided.
That is wrong on so many levels. A trade has to benefit both teams..

Just because Hudler holds next to no value to Detroit, does not mean he is a throw away for Calgary..He holds very similar value to Franzen on the trade market. Your point is moot.

It may not make sense for Detroit (which I can completely understand you saying..), but value wise it is by no means lopsided in Calgarys favor.

I also completely disagree with you that Franzen is as valuable as Bouwmeester, but we don't need to get into that..
