You're equating their value, I'm pointing out high end prospects can end up being steals.
I wouldn't dispute that claim; it's self-evident. But so what? It's meaningless unless you weigh the risk involved.

Gomez for McDonagh was not nearly the same level of a risk for the Rangers as Desharnais for Nino would be for us. That's what I'm saying. If this proposal was Kaberle for Nino I'd be all over it, even though Kaberle could return to near-elite form and Nino could bust hard.
