Hornqvist isn't one of my favorite Preds, but I don't make this deal. At best it's a lateral move. At worst, MacArthur actually comes in and makes our forward corps worse. Hornqvist is a known commodity, and, while he may not put up 30 goals every year, he is good for 40+ points. He is the best net presence player we have. He isn't a flashy guy, and he isn't a first liner, but you know what you're getting out of Hornqvist game-in and game-out. As far as playmakers go, we don't need any more guys looking for the pass. If anything, we need guys who will shoot the puck from anywhere.

Oh and I thought it was pretty obvious that Soundgarden was saying the Leafs won't give us anything we would actually want for Watson. We aren't getting any of their big names for a prospect. These two teams don't really make very good trading partners. I don't think anyone is trying to knock the Leafs or their players (at least not Nashville fans).
