Arguments can be made that any prospect can become the second coming of Jesus on skates, but the fact remains that the prospect isn't a guarantee.

Only on HF will a prospect who hasn't played a single game in the NHL be worth more than a player who has established himself as at worst a top 3 D in the league.
By the same Logic would you rather have a "proven" 10$ or a ticket with one chance out of two to win 50$ (25$ expectation) ?

If the expectation and the odds a player will become an NHL player are good enough, prospect have greater value than current player.

And isn't only on HF that a proven rivet is traded for Gorges and a pick. That a proven Gomez is traded for a McDonagh, That a proven Nieuwendyk is traded for Iginla.

How do you explain the Lindros trade ? Only on HF?
