As a deal...that's a whole lot of upside to give up for a proven mediocre player.
This is still a wildcard----

Washington does have young forward depth in their system.

some scouts are unsure with him. Could he be a 1st liner or a 3rd liner. This was a fair risk on Nashville's part while Washington wants to try and win now.

Latta who they also got back is replacing Forsberg in their system.
