Kovalchuk (+ Ansi Salmella) went for a promising rookie forward in the midst of a 20-goal season, a lower pairing defenseman, a prospect (recent 2nd round pick), and a 1st round pick at the trade deadline.

Hossa (+Pascal Dupuis) went for a useful bottom six forward, a depth forward/shootout specialist, a prospect (recent 1st round pick), and a 1st round pick at the trade deadline.

A full season* of Jordan Staal was worth a young 3rd line/shutdown center, a prospect (recent 2nd round pick), and the 8th overall selection.

A full season of Gaborik would definitely be worth more than a 1st round pick alone.

*Granted, it was obvious Staal would extend in Carolina. But it was also heavily speculated he would go there in free agnecy in a season, anyway.

A last first for a full year of Gaborik

Ovechkin-Backstrom-Gaborik
Johansson-Riberio-Brouwer
Chimera-Laich-Wolski

Might not win the cup but atleast we might finally pass the second round. But i highly doubt Gaborik will go for a first round pick only
That would push Washington over the salary cap.
