Ron Francis is also better than Adam Oates was at the time
. I'm not saying that trade should be the standard, but it certainly isn't excluded as a possiblity when discussing the value of veteran players. The jump from 3rd Round Pick, as equated above, and the return for Oates is quite a leap in value. I'd say that the value of Francis is between those two extremes.
Nope, Oates was leading the league in assists, I believe, and was also in the top 5 in the point leaders when we acquired him. Francis has 24 points in 58 games this year, it's not
close to being the same situation.
Factor in that EVERYONE has admitted that Oates was highly overpaid for, not the norm, and that Francis is not as good as Oates was when we acquired him and you'll realize that you're not going to get a whole lot in return for Francis.
