Of course there's no absolutes in value - but it's all relative.

It's not hard to assess the kind of player/contract a team is willing to take on for an asset.

Is NYR going to demand Gagner? No. But a player of Gagner's value? Sure why not. A young RFA above-average secondary scoring center is definitely worth an established #1-2 defenseman like Staal/Girardi.

So someone/some package of that value is likely going to be the price
