My only concern is that this could mean a serious injury for Sullivan or Erat, which cripples our offense even with the addition of Svatos.
Speaking as the only person on earth with a Svatos jersey (other than Marek), I can tell you that he KNEW how to score. A lot of his stick handling seemed to have disappeared toward his tenure with the Avs, which took away his ability to use his speed breaking into the offensive zone. I don't know much about Nashville's play style, but if you have a guy who can make plays and slow the game down, hopefully he can simulate some of the chemistry he had with Pierre Turgeon. Really, really hope he does well with you guys, Svats is still one of my favorite players in the league.
