The people who think this is good think this is the same seto from SJ. He isn't. Not close either. If you trade Despres, its for a difference maker. Seto isn't.
And how many Wild games have you watched? You act like Despres is a blue-chip prospect while Seto is some useless scrub who is doomed to never even sniff 15 goals again in his career. Tons of players have potential but rarely does a player ever reach his full potential. Despres is likely to be a 2nd pairing defenseman for most of his career while Seto is a sold RH top-6 winger. Real NHL players carry more value than a similar prospect, that is the reality.

And claiming that Despres was the second best defenseman on a playoff team that had a record breakingly terrible performance really isn't adding much value to him.
