its impossible to say... contracts/age/team needs/chemistry...
but as an example... Patrice Bergeron and David Krecji fit your definition of very good 2 way centers and play for my team. I wouldnt deal either of them straight up for Phil Kessel who was also a Bruin but I might deal either of them straight up for Patrick Kane or Bobby Ryan or Rick Nash.
So I guess I think in general terms an elite game breaking winger is worth more then a very well rounded second line center
