Young defenseman who either are or have a chance to be elite, are worth a ton. Always have been. Subban needs to mature a lot like Pronger did. If he does, he can be a special player. Centers just dont hold that same value unless they're premier scorers. Couturier is not that guy.
Chelios was traded for a washed up Denis Savard in what is still considered among the worst trades Montreal has ever made. In addition, you are comparing Pronger in his prime to Subban? Good lord.
