Capitals Acquire Martin Erat and Michael Latta from Nashville


ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have acquired forwards Martin Erat (mahr-TIHN EE-rat) and Michael Latta (MIGH-kuhl LA-tuh) from the Nashville Predators in exchange for forward Filip Forsberg, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today.

Erat, 31, has recorded 21 points (four goals, 17 assists) and 26 penalty minutes in 36 games with Nashville this season. He ranked tied for first on Nashville in points and led the team in assists at the time of the trade. Erat ranked second among Nashville forwards in time on ice per game (18:55) and tied for second among Nashville forwards in power-play time on ice per game (2:41). He was named an alternate captain for Nashville this season.

The native of Trebic, Czech Republic, currently ranks second in Nashville franchise history in career points (481), goals (163), assists (318), games played (723), game-winning goals (26) and ranks third in power-play goals (42). He recorded a career-high 58 points (19 goals, 39 assists) last season for Nashville and has eclipsed the 50-point plateau in five of the last six seasons. The three-time 20-goal scorer has represented the Czech Republic in the World Championships (three times), World Junior Championships (twice) and the Winter Olympic Games in 2006 and 2010.

The 6’, 196-pound forward has registered 23 points (eight goals, 15 assists) in 46 career playoff games with Nashville, ranking second in playoff scoring, games played, assists and fourth in goals in Nashville postseason history.

Erat was drafted by Nashville in the seventh round (191st overall) in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. He has played all 723 of his career NHL games with Nashville.

Latta, 21, ranks second on the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) in points (34) and first in assists (26) among active players. He compiled a plus-9 rating and 184 penalty minutes (led the team) in 67 games played this season. In 122 career AHL games with Milwaukee, the St. Clements, Ontario, native has recorded 23 goals, 41 assists and 286 penalty minutes.

The 6’, 215-pound center was drafted by Nashville in the third round (72nd overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He will report to Hershey.

Whoah.

What is this madness!?


Surprised to see Erat moved; but realisitcally - Nashville is long overdue for a forward prospect of note.

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

Same here.

Not much to add about the deal as it is way too early to judge a winner in this one. Forsberg is a top prospect and will probably make an impact in the near future. As Erat again can hopefully help out immediately in WAS and help out on offense big time. Good trade from both sides.

I guess the next question is, what would it take to get Forsberg out of Nashville on draft day haha

Booth + 3rd
Schreoder + 2nd

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.

At this point in their carrers Forsberg has more value, good trade for Nashville.

I'm conflicted big time on this one. On one hand, it was way too early for the Caps to trade away Forsberg. However, Erat is a very underrated player, who has been putting up decent points on a defensive minded Nashville team. Although I would rather have Forsberg (due to potential), Erat may be able to put up big points playing on a more offensive minded team.

A perenial 50-60 pt player on the Predators is not chopped liver folks. He's also a player with good underlying numbers (his -7 is misleading) - he's typically a guy who gets less than 50% ozone starts.

Odd deal - Nashville is tied for 8th and give up their top scorer. Yeah, great prospect, but their fans have got to wonder what this says about their management's perception of their potential this season.

Washington is only 3 points out, and buying.

Forsberg as the main piece going back for Pominville would have made more sense.
