Unless the Preds are going to spend big money (and no I don't mean only re-signing Weber, Suter, Rinne), this is one of the dumbest trades we've ever made. I have a right to be wary of whether or not this is going to happen. Never has in the past, so why would it start now?
Poile is one of the best GMs in the league and better have something up his sleeve, because as much as this team relies on defense and their young d-man corps, trading essentially Franson for Lebda is dumb. Lombardi must REALLY be in bad shape because giving up on him when he could even maybe come back is also questionable, although I guess part of me sees the salary dump reasoning.
Yeah we have great young talent but the talent isn't going to mean much, and Weber, Suter, and Rinne shouldn't want to come back here long-term unless they feel like we can ADD ON to the roster, not just bring it back.
