<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>F50marco</b></div><div>Assume you are right, Joe Morrow had 11 points in 38 games including 5 goals...... Former 1st round pick that a lot of people still had high hopes for so I think he had better value than these guys.. Froese on the other hand was traded essentially for Folin so these are waiver wire players only. No picks were given here. The only other player the Habs got a pick from a team in the past 10 years was Jerebek...... so im not sure what you are talking about when you say these players have value. Trading 1 guy with little value for another guy with little value is just swapping players. No value is exchanged. No one would give a pick for these guys but they would swap another player for them if they wanted to.

- Lindgren hasn't played more than a couple games in the NHL the past couple seasons and his statistics have been bad at the AHL level.
- Peca signed a generous contract despite not actually doing much at the NHL level and hasn't done anything to make anyone think he's more than an AHL'er with callup 4th line ability.
- Reilly is an NHL'er but a 7th dman at best. Most teams will only give a pick for this guy if he was at least putting up points. Reilly isn't, in fact he isn't even getting into the lineup.

So these guys have ZERO value in trade. Could they be traded for another teams player that is equally disappointing? Sure, but that is not value. That is two teams trying to resuscitate those players careers or just adding playoff depth in the off chance they get a ton of injuries.

You can't add these guys to a trade. They don't bring up the value of the trade. In fact they decrease the value of the trade because that team would rather not have to pay them at all then take on another contract of a player whose only just a 4th liner/AHL'er at best.</div></div>
