Draper Traded for a Dollar - Behind the Numbers

Most people know Kris Draper as the guy who played center for the Detroit Red Wings on their infamous "Grind Line". What most people don't realize though is Draper was a member of the Winnipeg Jets before he was traded to Detroit on June 30th, 1993.

What's the significance of that trade?

The Winnipeg Jets valued Draper so highly that when they traded him to Detroit it was for a whopping return of $1.

I guess it's fair to say that Detroit got their bang for their...buck!

That works out to:
$0.00088 Per Game Played
$0.006 Per Goal
$0.005 Per Assist
$0.00013 Per Penalty Minute
$1.00 Per Selke Trophy
$0.25 Per Stanley Cup

But how can this deal get even sweeter?

Red Wings Legend Darren McCarty has always said that the deal was completed in Canadian Currency giving the Red Wings an even better return on their investment!
