Larsson was their #5... still, he wasn't a top 50 prospect... he doesn't project as a 1st liner. He's a 2nd tier prospect, the end. Of course, once the Sabres acquire said player, he's immediately sold as something more.

Hackett is a goalie prospect, they are a dime a dozen, and hold the equivalent of a 2nd round pick in trade value.

the pick, was projected to be a lot lower than 16th, the Wild were leading the division (3 seed) when the trade was made... they had a terrible final 15 games that dropped them to 8th.
