So it works out to a top 6 forward with some issues, top 4 d-man with injury concerns and backup goalie for Lu, a d-man prospect and useless pick thrown in. I'm not sure I would want to give up too much more than that considering his age & contract (regardless of cap hit, he's getting paid about $7M per season for the next several yrs).
I'm pretty sure he was unsigned at the time though.. about to be UFA.. or close to it. Prolly hurt his value a tad.
