And Handzus and Boyle are very comparable...except that the trade led to Handzus winning a Stanley Cup, and his play led to the Blackhawks signing him to a new contract this year.

Perhaps you're right...they're not comparable at all.
Alright, let's use Gaustad.

Handzus was looked at as a cap dump. He was awful in SJ. No one wanted him. They were trying to move him for a while and no one wanted his contract. BIG difference.
