As an aficionado of bas Devils trades (and there have been more than one), I'll put these deals ahead of that one:

1. Lee Norwood for Paul Ysebaert
2. Bob Brooke for Aaron Broten
3. Dave Maley for a draft pick that turned out to be Mathieu Schneider.
4. Sylvain Turgeon for Pat Verbeek

Radim Vrbata strait up for Bates Battaglia, even though he became Konowalchuk, who has been good for us.

Sometimes you need good veterans who are solid, give you depth and good in the room, more than a 20yr old goal scorer with a chip on his shoulder.

(dont get me wrong, I love Hull, but until he got to Dallas, he was not a team player in my opinion)
Not stars? Ramage was a Norris Trophy winner, and once Gary Suter went out with an injury in the playoffs, he stepped up(so did MacInnis). Without him, it might not have happened.

I still cry at how we reinvigorated the Leafs franchise with the Doug Gilmour trade - especially when the rumour was around that Ron Francis could have been available in a straight swap.
Friggin Gary Leeman.

sorry, but i dont think rob ramage ever won the norris trophy. At least not according to hockey database.

that said, i agree with you (i think), in that he was a VERY valuable addition.

My err - candidate - until I find the article I read stating he won (or possibly, contested) the Norris. Either way, he was a good pick up, though I would have like to see Hull don the Flaming C longer.

I think it was some interest we owed the Blues after fleecing them in the Gilmour trade.

Speaking of which, his name pops up here a lot. Wonder if he's the player most likely to be involved in a lopsided trade?

John Leclair, Eric Desjardins and Gilbert Dionne were a lot to pay for Mark Recchi, as good as he was then. Not getting anything for the likes of Eric Weinrich, Vincent Damphousse and Bobby Smith was not terribly inspired either: they were not just good players, but pillars of the team.

Demitra was a ninth-round pick who had scored only 12 goals and 26 points in 59 games as a Sen (under half a point a game, in a much more offensive time than today), scattered over three separate seasons of trying (and failing) to establish himself with the big club.

They were thinking the same as everyone else was thinking - like most managers, they did not have the gift of future sight. All they had to go on was what they saw up to that trade - and there wasn't much to see.

I would say the Leopold to Calgary for Nazarov wasn't the best trade the Ducks ever did.
I mean Selanne's trade eventually turned into Sykora...

The Selanne deal was originally awful, but it was nicely salvaged.

The most recent Blues Blunder was the

To St. Louis
Bure, cash, and conditional 5th rounder

To Florida:
Mike Van Ryn

Note: Blues put Bure on Waivers and he returns to Florida (Ouch).

Also there was a deal w/ Vancouver in the early 90s involving Cliff Ronning and Sergie Momesso for a D man. (Don't remember the details - too lazy to look them up).

Can't think of one for Atlanta Stephen? How about Marc Savard to Atlanta. Calgary recieved an ECHL player in return.

Cliff Ronning, Geoff Courtnall, and Sergio Momesso for Dan Quinn and Garth Butcher.

I would say that Tampa's worst trade ever was the Fedotenko deal.

RE: Lindros Trade

Lindros was the best player in the deal until injuries mounted. More important than being the best player involved though was the spark he caused off the ice. Flyers were flagging at the time, Lindros re-lit the fire of a hockey city. Plus, acquiring 'The Next One' sold the Flyers to Comcast. No Comcast, no juicy money streams and no First Union Center (now the Wachovia Center).

RE: Dallas' Worst Trade

It was a few years before they moved, but the Stars sent Hall-of-Fame bound Larry Murphy in his prime to Pittsburgh for a pair of grunts (Jim Johnson and Chris Dahlquist).

Small one to add: Willie Mitchell for Sean O'Donnell.

O'Donnell was pretty bad during his stint with NJ. Best shown by him getting scratched in games 5 and 6 of the Cup Finals for the defensive stalwart known as Ken Sutton. Mitchell in the mean time has turned into a pretty solid defender.
