Theres that Washington deal. Just 2 hours and 2 minutes late. Well done.

Not sure why Washington made this deal. Erat is good, but he's just another normal 2nd line player.

Wow, wonder if McPhee ever offered Forsberg for Luongo?

Luongo + Raymond vs Forsberg would have been nice

Great trade for Nashville. Forsberg is going to be a stud!

What is Washington's GM smoking? If you're going to trade a first rounder who was ranked top 5, at least get someone better than friggen Erat! Forsberg alone for Pominville is better than what Minny gave up.
