We don't want this trade.
One wonders if FLorida fans want this trade now?

Good point. I guess those who were grossly overvaluing Jokinen have some backtracking to do. Certainly if someone had proposed the actual Olli trade before the draft it would have been met with ridicule.

Are either Torres, Stoll, or Smid comparable to Ballard?

I look forward to your response

So, how would you evaluate the entirety of the two trades (including 1st round pick), as opposed to picking out one player?

If you're going on the "best player wins" theory, then either way Florida loses...

Ballard as a 25-year old put up 21 points last year.

Ladislav Smid is a 22-year old top-10 pick who is slated to become a physical 2-way defenseman as he continues to develop. We've seen him skate, and we've seen him pass. With 1-2 more years under his belt, he'll be easily better than Ballard.

Stoll, Torres, 2nd >>>>> Boynton, 2nd

Face it, Florida fans are kicking themselves over the deal.

Hmm, now that we see the Stoll equivalency, I think they are kicking themselves even more!

I think a lot of fans are wondering why they didnt offer a 5/6 dman, and a 3rd line centre for Lubo.

You gotta wonder.

Maybe Stoll has an upside and intangibles that some people didnt recognize previously?
