We might be equal on value....However, Mark McNeill would not be traded for a defense prospect ever. McNeill would be traded only for a rostered player #3 defenseman or 2nd line center.

But value is hard to argue. No doubt Pysyk was a good pick.

I don't really see any reason for Chicago to make this trade, but for Pysyk, I'd rather trade K.Hayes than McNeill.

But again, I don't really see the point of this trade from Chicago. They have ample quality prospects at both centre and on defense and it's not like they'll have alot of spots opening up in the next 1-3 years.

They're definitely the same players. He might not be a #1 center, but he'll definitely be a #2 if he continues on his projected path.

They're also both alike in their receding hair lines too!

But no to the trade on the grounds of: We need both a Big center and another BIG mean defender.

The Hawks have lacked a center with some size and skill for a very long time. I could easily see McNeill and Saad playing with Kane in 2 years. The trade concept, while relatively fair, seems somewhat irrelevant.

I like Pysyk but would rather have the center.
