Galiev is closer to Saad than any of those prospects are to Johansson right now. He's discounted way too easily.
Also, Sharp is a 30 year old 35 goal/70 point winger who is good around defensively and intangible and whatnot. Carlson is a 22 year old top pairing shutdown defenseman... who also puts up 35 points a year at this stage in his development, signed to about what Hjarmalsson makes for the next 6 years. You could argue Carlson brings as much to a hockey team as Sharp does now let alone in the future.
