1st round picks in the post lockout world are of insane value
Posted by pbergeron37
We must have different definitions of the word "insane":
I don't think Steve Eminger is an insane value:
/> Capitals — Traded Steve Eminger, 2008 third round pick (#84-Jacob Deserres) to Flyers for 2008 first round pick (#27-John Carlson) on 2008-06-20
I don't think Alex Tanguay is an insane value:
/> Flames — Traded Alex Tanguay, 2008 fifth round pick (#138-Maxim Trunev) to Canadiens for 2008 first round pick (#25-Greg Nemisz), 2009 second round pick (#49-Stefan Elliott) on 2008-06-20
I wouldn't consider Vesa Toskola and Mark Bell to be insane values:
/> Sharks — Traded Vesa Toskala, Mark Bell to Maple Leafs for conditional first round pick (2007 #13-Lars Eller), 2007 second round pick (#44-Aaron Palushaj), 2009 fourth round pick (#98-Craig Smith) on 2007-06-22
Is Shane O'Brien an insane value?
/> Ducks — Traded Shane O'Brien, 2007 third round pick (#75-Luca Cunti) to Lightning for Gerald Coleman, 2007 first round pick (#16-Colton Gillies) on 2007-02-24
Is Ladislav Nagy an insane value?
/> Coyotes — Traded Ladislav Nagy to Stars for Mathias Tjarnqvist, 2007 first round pick (#21-Riley Nash) on 2007-02-12
Craig Rivet isn't insane in my books:
/> Canadiens — Traded Craig Rivet, 2008 fifth round pick (#146-Julien Demers) to Sharks for Josh Gorges, 2007 first round pick (#22-Max Pacioretty) on 2007-02-25
Not many would assign the word "insane" to Korolyuk and Fahey!
/> Sharks — Traded Jim Fahey, Alexander Korolyuk to Devils forVladimir Malakhov, conditional first round pick (2007 #26-David Perron) on 2006-10-01
Pretty difficult to call two second round picks "insane":
/> Capitals — Traded two 2005 second round picks (#47-Tom Fritsche) (#52-Chris Durand) to Avalanche for 2005 first round pick (#27-Joe Finley) on 2005-07-30
Should I keep going?
