Aren't these the three "former first rounders" you just sited as such a great return for Jagr?
Right, although Sivek would be a first rounder with the league expansion...

About Jagr, you're getting at a point I was hinting at: a first rounder really isn't a great return in itself -- the success rate is probably a third at most. But, if you add 4 million, it looks a lot better to management.

I didn't like the trade then, and I don't like it now, but you can't argue that it looked terrible on paper at the time.
