It's not a perfect comparison, but I don't think it's ridiculous. It's a better comparible than Hossa and Kovalchuk as they were both in their 20s when they were traded.

Also for argument's sake, JvR was just traded for Schenn this offseason. At least two GMs around the league value power forwards and shut down defensemen similarly.
