I doubt it will be Horton is finally playing like a first line winger and Filppula is a 2nd line centre and Abdelkader a 3rd/4th line winger right now and hopefully a 2nd/3rd line winger in the future and the third could easily amount to nothing.

To be clear. Once we talk about 2-3 years down the road the equation changes.

Filppula is a 2nd line center today. In 2-3 years he has 1st line center upside which he may never reach.

Abdelkader is a 3rd/4th line Center right now who can play wing. In 2-3 years he will be may be a 2nd or 3rd line center/ winger. With some top line upside as a power forward. We wont see Abs ceiling till he hits 25 or 26. He is actually still really young.

Those are two pretty solid player prospects. Horton is finally playing like a first line winger but in 2-3 years may still be or may no longer be.

Are 2 top 9 forwards possibly top 6 forwards = to 1 top 3 forward?

It is hard to tell. I will say it again the value is there but each GM would have their own reason to do it or not do it based on their team plan.

that's all well and good but Horton is playing like a Gamebreaker right now so no need to trade him just to gain a mid round pick and decent prospect.
