There aren't a lot of comparable scenarios here, but again the Kessel one is close. You had two 1sts and a 2nd, the 1sts being
unknown at the time.
Unknown, yes. But the Leafs had a horrible roster. Far far worse than the Canucks roster now. Their 1sts at the time, even though unknown, held far more value than a Canucks 1st right now. The fact that you think a prospect, Ballard, and a late 1st is equivalent to what Kessel got is pathetic. You can't just say, oh, 1st=1st, Ballard+spect=1st+2nd. The Leafs 1sts, even while unknown, held far more value than a Canucks 1st
