Luongo and Thornton so far.

Jack Johnson for Tim Gleason has the potential to get pretty ugly.

Not sure what modern era is defined as in this thread..

I'm assuming post lockout.. If so, the Luongo deal or the Thornton deal both fit the bill.

Another deal prior to the lockout was Kvasha and Parrish to NYI for Luongo and Jokinen.

Hasek and Roy trades were both huge ripoffs. Although in both cases the team giving them up was dealing from a weak position.

These trades were grand larceny:

Espo to the Bruins
Dryden to the Habs
1st overall that became Lafleur to the Habs
Middleton to the Bruins
Oates to the Blues
Gilmour to the Flames
Gilmour to the Leafs
Hasek to the Sabres
Thornton to the Sharks
Luongo, Jokinen to the Cats
Luongo to the Nucks
Bertuzzi, McCabe to the Nucks
Naslund to the Nucks
Doug Harvey to the Rangers
Chelios to the Hawks
Gretzky to the Kings
Messier to the Rangers
McCabe to the Leafs
C.Lemieux to the Devils

Tim Gleason is miles ahead of Johnson at the moment.

Yashin to the Islanders has to be pretty high up there.

It was a good trade for everyone involved. The Habs, Stars and Ribeiro and Plekanec. Plain and simple, sometimes a guy just has to go.

Would I have liked the Habs to have received more? Sure, but given the circumstances we had to be realistic.

And i agree....however there had to be more teams willing to give up more than Janne Niinimaa.

I'm sure Gainey tried. He felt the Habs needed another experienced d-man and Niinimaa had a good training camp that year. It didn't work out well, but I could see where Gainey was coming from. Good for Ribeiro for taking the kick in the ass like a man and turning his career around. To be honest, I was hoping Gainey wasn't going to offer him a qualifying offer that summer and let him walk, so that's how much I personally valued Ribeiro at that point.

There were a couple of picks also involved in that trade, so the entire story has yet to be written.

His next one wasn't all that great by the trader either. Jagr for Anson Carter?

Although I suppose it was a LITTLE bit better.

Both trades involving Jagr. As noted by Mark. Also, Anson Carter for Jagr was lopsided as well.

Watch out now....trade isn't over.... Both teams got a pick out of this, Andrew Conboy for us, Matt Tassone for Dallas. We'll see how it ends up in a few years. I do agree that both NHL'ers though aren't comparable. Still I do remember at that time in this board, that Ribeiro wasn't even worth Niniimaa......That gutless puke that was playing for Montreal that suddenly became that great indispensable player, wasn't always knows as is and that's because he decided to turn his career around....Something he decided to do 'cause he was traded.

Still as bad a Niinimaa was, he still played 41ish games in the NHL for us helping us a little (and I stress a little...) while Balej and a 2nd for Kovalev......knowing that the 2nd is Bruce Graham....that's pretty lopsided to me.

How about Gretzky, McSorley and Krushelnyski for Jimmy Carson, Martin Gelinas, $15 million in cash, and the Kings' first-round draft picks in 1989 (later traded to the New Jersey Devils—New Jersey selected Jason Miller), 1991 (Martin Rucinsky), and 1993 (Nick Stajduhar)

Granted Edmonton got 3 1st round picks but the players that those pics were used for are blah.............so that nulifies the significance of those picks.

Tom Kurvers to the New Jersey Devils for the Leafs first round pick in 1991 that turned out to be Scott Niedermayer

Heatley (for Hossa) for Armstrong, Christensen, Esposito and a 1st looks pretty one-sided too
