Another 1st or a good prospect almost NHL Ready(Zucker, Nelson, Donovan, Pysyk etc.)
Hmm.. I don't know if he would get a bigger return or not. When Carter was traded he was coming off a 36 goal campaign while being +27. He is a goal producing machine. In 8 seasons he only had one season under 20 goals..

Kesler might be better defensively but it seems that he is not going to retain the form where he put up close to a ppg ever again.
He is also coming off a bunch of injuries...

I'd say my offer of MPS/Gagner, 7th overall and a 2nd is very close to ball park.
