Gaustad got a playoff level 1st.
Quincy got 1st.
rental Kablerle got Joe Colborne, a first-round draft pick, and a conditional pick

The 1st round pick is often an inclusion in packages for good-excellent players. At the deadline, the price gets inflated to include medium-good players. It really is the most generally accepted currency.

It's Gardiner that would halt all talks. Not the 1st, despite the bad feelings about the Kessel trade. He's much, much better than a 1st round pick - he is the realized form of what a 1st could be if all goes well. Needless to say, I'm not surprised Burke balked when Gardiner was requested. I would do the same.
