Ed Davis was up coming, imagine somewhere around Frattin. Finnally putting it all together it seemed to be a solid player.

Calderon was like a Tomas Kaberle who never stopped playing well.

EDIT:

Off the top of my head

Matt Frattin (of Today, except with a higher potential)
Tomas Kaberle (if we still had him and his play never dropped)
2nd
for
Paul Stastny
Right idea, but Stastny isn't the example I would use. Rudy Gay is a top 10, arguably top 5 all-star SF. Stastny isn't even a top 20 C.

It would be like the Leafs just offered that and got back Phil Kessel... a young established top 5-10 player at his position, although not necessarily a franchise cornerstone.
