Also, another point...in trade deadlines past, I think it would have been appropriate to pay a premium (Jarnkrok + 2nd/3rd) for a pending UFA like Legwand.
However, this trade deadline, the prices were relatively low. In that sense, we overpaid compared to other teams--especially since Legwand had a NTC and obviously wanted to come here.
The price was based on our needs. The preds knew that we needed a center desperately. You can't really base it on the other prices around the league.
Side note:I remember when the wings traded ville leino, and how high he was regarded in the wings organization at the time. They are just prospects, they come and go.
