To say Filip Forsberg trade is one of the worst trade in NHL history is an overstatement. Here are some underrated NHL lopsided trades. (No Messier/Gretzky/Roy trade)
===================================================================
1) 1975: Detroit traded MARCEL DIONNE and Bart Crashley to Los Angeles for Terry Harper, cash, 2nd round pick and Dan Maloney

2) 1970: California/Oakland traded 1971 1st round pick turned GUY LAFLEUR, Cash and Francois Lacombe to Montreal for 1970 1st round pick turned nobody and Ernie Hickie

3) 1964: Boston traded Alex Campbell and rights of KEN DRYDEN to Montreal for Guy Allen and Paul Reid

5) 1967: Chicago traded PHIL ESPOSITO, Ken Hodge Sr. and Fred Stanfield to Boston for Jack Norris, Pit Martin and Gilles Marotte
(Apparently, Esposito had attitude problem but it's still a lopsided traded)

6) 1975: New York Rangers traded BRAD PARK, JEAN RATELLE, Joe Zanussi to Boston for Phil Esposito and Carol Vadnais

7) 1990: Montreal traded CHRIS CHELIOS to Chicago for Denis Savard.
(on the same date 26 years late, the Subban trade happened lol)

Trading picks that turn into good players don’t belong on this list.

The bruins traded a 5th for Adam mcquaid when he was a prospect. That’s an awesome trade for Boston. That pick turned into Jamie Benn. Both of those statements are true.

Yeah, like this trade strait up mcquaid for Benn is amazing for Dallas. Mcqaid for a 5th is great for Boston. Would boston have selected Benn? We will never know. Would Dallas selected Benn anyway? We don’t know.

Yup. Always said it doesn’t matter what player they pick. They weren’t traded for a player, they were traded for a draft pick

Why are the draft pick trades considered bad? Who knows who the original team would have selected?

HAHAHA! Especially when the draft pick is a 4th or 5th rounder! Every team could've taken Benn multiple times.

Like how would we know that Ottawa would've taken Tarasenko with that pick? Or that Tampa Bay would have taken Binnington?

Fair point, but that Lafleur trade wasn't just about luck. The Seals were horrible at the time and the Habs managed to convince the Seals to give up their 1st round pick (which turned into the 1st overall pick) in order to have a shot at Guy Lafleur or Marcel Dionne. The Habs basically gambled by predicting the Seals would be dead last in 1971. They even made trades to ensure the Seals remains dead last.

Could make an argument that the trades involving early first round picks, but that would assume we know who the team had targeted in the draft before they moved the pick.

The Flyers trade for Adam Oats stands out for me because he didn't do much and then signed with the Ducks in the summer.

Since he was in the news recently, in 1958 the Leafs trade Marc Reaume for Red Kelly. Norris winner and perennial all star, Kelly, had quit hockey in a contract battle with Jack Adams of the Red Wings, Imlach scooped up Kelly for a fringe NHLer and signed him immediately. Kelly was converted to a centre so the Leafs had a centre who could match up with Jean Beliveau. Four Cups later, NHL coach. and a beloved guy in the hockey, business and civic communities, thank goodness Mr Kelly returned to hockey.
