Ted Lindsay and Glenn Hall for Forbes Kennedy, Johnny Wilson, Hank Bassen, and Bill Preston. I understand the circumstances with Lindsay, and he wasn't as dominant after he left, but it still was a bad trade for Detroit.

Phil Esposito, Ken Hodge and Fred Stanfield for Jack Norris, Pit Martin and Gilles Marotte was pretty bad too.

The Adam Oates for 1 season of Bernie Federko was pretty horrible.

Eric Lindros did win the Hart, lead the regular season and playoffs in scoring, and was arguably the best player in the world over a 5 year stretch from around 1994-1999.

There's been plenty of trades where a team got less in return than that. Mike Millbury has been involved in a couple.



Over a 5 year stretch Islanders traded:

Jason Spezza, Zdeno Chara, Roberto Luongo, Olli Jokinen, Bryan McCabe, Todd Bertuzzi, Wade Redden

and in return got:

Mark Parrish, Oleg Kvasha, Bryan Berard, Trevor Linden, Alexei Yashin


Now THAT is some bad trading.

Milbury wasn't that bad of a GM. He almost singlehandedly made Ottawa and Vancouver the teams they were over the past five or so years.

In previous threads we concluded that the Dryden trade is the worst ever.

To Boston:
Guy Allen (5 seasons of minor pro)
Paul Reid (Never played minor pro)

To Montreal:
Ken Dryden (6 cups, 6 1st all-star selections.)
Alex Campbell (1 season of minor pro.)

Final result, 1 NHLer and that player is a hall of famer.

Indiana Racers (WHA) trade Wayne Gretzky, Eddie Mio, and Pete Driscoll to the Edmonton Oilers (WHA) for $700,000.

Just copy the trades from the BEST TRADE EVER thread, and look at it from the other perspective.

Around the trade deadline on one of the Preds broadcasts the color guy did a little segment about the whackiest trades ever. I wish I had handy link but some were pretty funny.

One guy was traded for a BUS....with transmission issues.

One guy was traded for some new goals (nets)

Oh and one, I forget the teams DOH!, but the owners of the teams both owned basketball franchises too and they cross sport traded. One owner traded a Hockey player to get a Basketball player back.

Anyone here know who would have had first crack at Gretzky if he had stayed with the Racers?

The Racers were pretty set on selling him off. That said, he would have been '79 eligible, I think, and the Colorado Rockies had 1st overall. But, he could have also have been '80 eligible. Montreal picked 1st in '80. But, I'm not sure Colorado would have traded the pick had Gretzky been available.

So, he likely would have gone to the Colorado Rockies.

That is an interesting thought...

My Leafs have had some doozies, i.e. Tom Kurvers for a first rounder (niedemayer) but this one takes the case.

The Leafs drafted Doug Jarvis then traded him to the Habs (before he played one game for the Leafs!!!!!) for Greg Hubick. Jarvis goes on to become the NHL iron-man, (914 games), won 4 Stanley Cups, now asst coach of Dallas. Meanwhile Greg Hubick played 72 games for the Buds racking up 14 points !!!!

Doug Jarvis on that great late 70's team of the Leafs could have put us over the top.
(Sittler, MacDonald, Thompson Williams, Boutette, Salming, Turnbull, Paltmateer and Jarvis would have been one heck of a core group).

100% agree. Lindros led the Flyers for years was the best player in the NHL and with him the Flyers made it to the Stanley cup final. Of course they overpaid but there are much worse trades out there

And what's funny, many here thought Calgary got a steal getting a hot prospect for a lazy bum.

This is the Rockies we are talking about. I have no doubt Miron would have been stupid enough to trade that pick.

Funny how Montreal stood pat while the other teams dealt their union guys away...well not so much funny as non-moronic.

"In 1967, Phil Esposito was dealt to the Boston Bruins in a blockbuster trade, along with Ken Hodge and Fred Stanfield. While the hitherto unremarkable Hodge and Stanfield became stars in the Black-and-Gold, Esposito blossomed into the greatest scorer of his day, becoming the first NHL player to score 100 points in a season with 126 in the 1969 season. He would top the "century" mark six times in all, including five consecutive seasons between 1971 and 1975 (plus a 99-point season in 1970). Esposito would also capture the Art Ross Trophy in 1969 and 1971-74 as the top regular season scorer."~Wikipedia
