Miller was far less valuable then Rachunek at the time of the trade since he was only two years away from unrestricted free agency.

Aulin then is also not worth Vermette now since Vermette has proven he can play in the NHL while Aulin hadn't proven that back then.

And Reinprecht had more value back then that Stu Barnes has now.
