Niedermeyer, Pronger, Suter and Chara are/were all Norris caliber defensemen

On the flip side the only Hart caliber center I can think that was traded in recent memory was Joe Thornton
This is kind of junk. Pronger was traded because his first team was for sale and wanted his $$$ of the ledger (made the team easier to sell). He was traded a second time because he demanded. You can't make an apple to apple comparison.

This is just an attempt to try to make an arguement that a team with a legit need for a top dman should be able to poach one from a team with one on the basis that you are getting a center.
