It's based on salary/playing time/honors achieved with that team. As someone said, mostly salary.
Losing goldson factored into a pretty heavy 'loss' for them considering his playing time, salary, and having been a pro-bowl selection previously.
the 49ers also lost Sopoaga and Delanie Walker; in comparison the Seahawks only lost Leon Washington and Jason Jones; Obviously Jason Jones had little play time and no honors with the Hawks; Leon was obviously a pro-bowl pick but his salary was low and he's a special teams player.
the 49ers have only added Glen Dorsey and some backup LB so what they've gotten in return for all the players they've lost is far less valuable than the adds of Avril and Bennett.
Long story short, 49ers have lost more and gained little, hawks lost little and gained more.
