I don't see why this is so difficult to figure out.
Those trades that you are posting aren't that accurate. You can't just say "Jeff Carter for Voracek, 1st and 3rd" without acknowledging it was a no 7 pick. Likewise, the Jordan Staal trade was Sutter, 8th overall, and Brian Dumoulin (who is near NHL ready top 4 defensive prospect).

Point being, you are trying to say that the value of Pleks isn't that high because of these trades when most people would say Staal, Richards, and Carter got pretty significant value in their trades.

I'd say a Saad+ lesser roster player/2nd round/solid prospect is definitely within this range.
