Looking back on it, it was a terrible deal. At the time, the deal looked like:

A youngish 3/4 defenseman who had a hell of a year prior and was struggling.
A young NHL sniper who had a solid start to the season before fading off.
A gritty 3C in the making who has all the intangibles
A first round pick.

At the time, the trade was a nice on for Atlanta. The pieces they got were all quality pieces, each one had their doubts and their struggles but that deal had the potential to work out amazingly for them. Unfortunately, it didn't.
