Take them out look what we have going into the offseason for NHL defensemen. Even worse. Despres is NHL-ready and isn't a prospect anymore arguably. He'd be able to come in here from day one and occupy one of the top-four spots. Buffalo will need help on defense for next season, not another prospect we'll have to wait on to add to McNabb, Pysyk, McCabe, Gauthier-Leduc, etc. who won't be NHL-ready.

Bennett + Niskanen + first or Despres + Kennedy + first is fair for me.
Niskanen is vastly more valuable than Kennedy. I would say Bennett/Despres is a wash value wise.
