More appropriate comparison is Rod Langway.
Rod had less than 300 games under belt, but was a rising star when he became disgruntled with his pay and being paid in Canadian Dollars.

Habs sent him as centrepiece in multiplayer deal to Washington, and did not receive full value back in the deal.

Langway went on to multiple Norris trophy's and Hall of Fame.

Some say the trade marked the start of the Habs slide back into being in the middle of the pack of the NHL.

That's my cautionary tale anyway.
