How about the three way trade where Detroit traded a dollar to Winnipeg in exchange for Kris Draper, a grinder who would contribute to all four of Detroit's modern era Stanley Cups. Mike Smith of the Jets then traded that dollar to a vending machine for a Diet Coke.

Detroit made out like bandits, Coca Cola got a fair deal and Winnipeg was just robbed...

I'm surprised that the Joe Thornton for Marco Sturm, Brad Stuart, and Wayne Primeau trade hasn't been mentioned until now.

Add Greg Pateryn to that list, Merci pour Grabo.

i dont consider it one sided at all... you can argue boston might have been able to get more, but thornton HAD to be dealt. With him, we had a loser locker room. He and his friends ran Scatchard out of town because they wanted to take it easy and Scatchard got upset because he wanted to win.

the trade was done to begin a rebuilding process. we needed to ship out the guys willing to play soft/and take losing easy. We needed to bring in a new core of guys hungry to win.

and just a few years later we won a cup and have had alot of playoff success. You can argue that it was all dumb luck and that MOC did the trade and then got fired over it... but Id say a trade like this doesnt get made without ownership involved.

Thornton has obviously had a great career of scoring alot of points... being one hell of a playmaker. He has never evalated his game at playoff time. He has shown alot of loyalty to San Jose. I guess he loves to surf? I dont think San Jose is known for being a wonderful playoff team though. Boston wasnt when Joe played for us either.

We didnt get much talent back for Joe... but we ended up with a good locker room. We saved alot of cap room and used the money to afford Chara/Savard So we still had a great playmaking center and we got a much better leader that was hungry to win.

Id say... it was all part of a grand plan to change the team... and the changes were better... so the trade might not be the best we possibly could have made but it was still for the best

You have to consider the situation at the time; none of these teams are in a position to know what those draft picks would bring; especially when they are some random late draft picks that happened to get a player no one saw as being all that noteworthy at the time.

Using hindsight doesn't justify claiming a trade was bad.
Completely agree,

Don't get why people think that a steal of a draft pick makes a trade lopsided (ex. Benn). Put that on the scouts and the GM's scouting ability, not the gm that made the trade (for usually good value).

The choker Joe thing is laughable. Guys a hell of a player, among the top in assists and the Bruins got robbed, like it or not. You don't trade young, 100 point players for trash and just shrug it off because he hasn't won a cup. You could easily make the argument that the Bruins would have won more cups and/or been even stronger than they are now.

While I'm of the opinion it was a bad trade for boston you can not easily make the argument you assert. At all.

I hardly feel that trades for 5th round picks who ended up being great players (Benn, Miller) are really that lopsided. The team giving up the pick probably doesn't care and wouldn't have drafted those players anyways. Yes, they were great picks and 5th round steals but it doesn't make them lopsided.
