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.
There would be much more value than Turris got, and not as much as Kessel got. If Ballard is worth roughly a second round pick (that's all he's worth now), then you need to add two non-playoff first round picks to equal what Toronto gave up for Kessel (turned out to be much worse picks than anticipated but they didn't expect to be giving up that much).
I think Ballard and 2 Canucks firsts for ROR may be in the range.
