I think you have this backwards. As already mentioned, Getzlaf's value to Pittsburgh is a LOT less than it is to a team like Toronto, Stl, Calgary and everyone else who doesn't have a #1 center. Just as teams like Pittsburgh or Columbus can afford to move a D more than teams like Minny, Nashville or Tampa. Or how Stl can still afford to move a winger more than Pittsburgh.

It's all about how much depth a team has at one position (this includes prospects and picks), and how they can leverage that to fill other positions.
