Every position has different values attached for different reasons. Goalie PROSPECTS don't hold a ton of value. While I'm aware he's a good prospect, if he was worth a 1st or even a 2nd, he would have been drafted in those rounds. VERY few goalies go in the first or second round and there's little they can do outside the NHL to increase their value. It really isn't until they prove something at the NHL level does their value get to 1st round pick return levels.

Now, please don't confuse what I'm saying as far as his ceiling relative to his value. Shesterkin went in the 4th round, but even he wouldn't have garnered that kind of return until he hit the NHL.</div></div>

It is very difficult to evaluate goalie prospects but looking at the numbers for the to in this trade Blomqvist had much better numbers last year in Liiga vs Portillo in NCAA. Blomqvist is a year younger and was taken in the second round where Portillo was taken in the third. So let’s say for arguments sake their value is a wash.

That puts this trade at Olofsson for Pettersson, a 1st, and a 2nd. If we go with what capfriendly had been saying all summer of Pettersson is worth a 3rd, which was when he was a cap dump and now that he is not his value is probably higher. He is also signed for less and longer than Olofsson and younger. This trade is Olofsson for a 1,2,and 3 which is very unrealistic. I would say Olofsson is at best worth a 2 and a 3. For him to add an entire pick to his value by the deadline he would need to be close to if not over 30 goals and 50-60 points. If that is the case then there is no way Buffalo should trade him.
