On paper it is a lopsided trade, but by the nucks getting to the final, it is not as lopsided as some people think who saw the series that year
But thats just speculation and the fact that the Leafs did not make it to the finals with Vaive isn't Vaive's fault. The only way that argument works is if you hold Vaive responsible for the whole team as a whole and the Canucks won primarily because of Williams which is completely false since its a team sport. For all we know, Vaive may have exploded the season after in Vancouver.
