Thus, it's easier for a team to add a dime than it is a quarter. So while they may be trading away dimes, by adding the quarter they can easily add another dime and another nicked through other methods and end up having 40 cents to 30 cents for 3 players.
I was not literally saying that those players are worth a dime if Backstrom is worth a quarter, it was just an example to say he was leaving out half the deal when he said some people were saying they would rather have Krejci than Backstrom and I was saying what I thought their logic was.
