come on guys. When you have the chance to stumble backwards into the playoffs as a #8 seed, you gotta pull the trigger on deals like this

Is it true that the caps have three (now 2) forsbergs in their system?

LOL and the caps fans thought they were getting Miller. That's a kick to the groin.

Why does Erat want out? He's been playing for Nashville for like 10 years...


Don't they play a defensive style? Maybe being in Washington would set him free. Plus, it's Nashville.


1. What's wrong with Nashville?
2. Why sign a 7-year contract if you didn't like it there?
3. He's not much of an offensive player, so I doubt his points would sky rocket if he went to Washington.

I just don't really understand the rumor of why he would want out of the organization he's continually played for.

edit: Guess it's official now.

Google is my friend:

Michael Latta is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League. Latta was selected by the Nashville Predators in the 3rd round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Wikipedia

Better question: why did the caps trade for him with Forsberg?

Ya just gotta shake your head!

Don't look now, but my sources tell me the Pens are close to striking a deal for RW Jamie Benn. They are giving up C Sidney Crosby and G Marc-Andre Fleury in return. Remember, you heard it here first!

Is he though? I don't follow him - I know he was projected (mock drafts, whatever that is worth) to be one of the first picks in the draft, then was passed over by a bunch of teams taking defensmen, including the Pens.

Has his stock dropped that much? Or is this just a silly trade by the Caps?

Nashville is a great town and they're just now getting a string of sell-out crowds going. They keep losing key pieces of the puzzle and really aren't going to have the dollars to build a consistently competitive franchise. When he signed the deal (2008) IIRC I thought the Preds were on the way up. Maybe he did too.

By need, they do play a grinding style and if Erat wants to go up tempo then DC would be a good place to go. I do think he has some upside to his offense and has been consistently at a 20-goal-a-year pace here in Nashville. It will be interesting to see what he can do with his skills there.

Personally, I like him a lot. He seems like a good guy, a hard worker, and seems at home at both ends of the ice. Hate to see him go from here especially when he lands there.

Is it as bad as LGP when the Pens didn't draft him? or worse?
