A couple other bad trades:

1) May 1967 -

To Chicago - Pit Martin, Jack Norris and Gille Marotte

To Boston - Phil Esposito, Ken Hodge and Fred Stanfield.

2) June 1986 -

To Boston - Cam Neely and a 1st round draft pick (Glen Wesley)

To Vancouver - Barry Pederson.

I think this one takes the cake though -

June 1992 -

To Philadelphia - Eric Lindros

To Quebec - Ron Hextall, Mike Ricci, Peter Forsberg, Steve Duchesne, Kerry Huffman, Chris Simon and a 1st round draft pick (Joceyln Thibault) along with future considerations and about $15 million.

Oh, and speaking of Dryden - how about the Habs-Jets trade from 1984?

To Montreal - 3rd round pick (Patrick Roy)
To Winnipeg - Robert Picard.

That said, you have no way of knowing how any particular draft pick will turn out (see the litany of no. 1 picks who've had less than stellar careers (Alexandre Daigle, Brian Lawton (drafted ahead of Steve Yzerman, Cam Neely, Tom Barrasso, and Pat LaFontaine), Gord Kluzak (ahead of Chris Pronger), and Patrik Stefan (ahead of Sedin twins, Henrik Zetterberg, and Martin Havlat). Of course there's an argument to be made that good scouting helps mitigate unknowns.

Remember the worst trade for one team is the best trade for the other. One no one has mentioned was The California Seals trading away the rights to the number one pick (Guy Lafleur) for oldtimer Ernie Hicke.

No cup for Dino, what a shame
