I guess while you can consider Aulie a prospect, Tampa made that trade to have a NHL player on their roster. I am talking about a pure trade of a prospect who hasn't sniffed the NHL yet(or had a cup of coffee at the most) who a team has hopes of them actually making some form of impact int he NHL.

I would look at that trade as a prospect(Ashton) for a guy who just stopped being one(Aulie) so it was a case Tampa got a better grasp what they were getting while the Leafs got the higher upside in the deal but more potential to bust

ETA: I guess one could argue the Lindros trade had 2 high end prospects(Forsberg and Lindros) plus one good prospect(Chris Simon) involved but that would be a special case
