Ignoring age, team needs, and the salary cap...

Hard to say which player is more valuable. Chara is a top 2-3 Dman over the last 5+ years. But on the flipside, Datsyuk is a top 2-3 forward over the same time frame.

Physical towering elite two-way defenceman with one of the best point shots in the game?

Or savvy elite two-way forward (emphasis on the elite defensive side of his game, he won the Selke three years straight) capable of putting up over PPG numbers.

I guess it comes down to which position you prefer, since they're both among the best of the best at their respective positions. Values pretty fair to me (again, ignoring age, team needs, etc).
