If he truly believes that he has no spot as a NHL GM. Filip Forsberg is sounds better than he was when he was traded. He was one of the most important player on a team that has been stacked for years but failed to get back to Elitserien. He was dominating came 2nd in goals and averaged a point per game against the tough competition in Kvalserien. Voted Best player on silvermedal winning team at the WJC. Forsbergs value has never been higher than it was right now and he was selling him for Martin Erat. It makes no sense what so ever. Unless they truly believe Martin Erat is the missing piece for a Stanley Cup run.. and honestly.. do anyone believe that?
Yeah, it is a bit strange but I guess (hope!) there is some alternate logic at swing here.

Anyway, to generalise and extrapolate a bit, Forsberg is among the best Swedish prospects around and it is fair to believe that Sweden will produce some top 6 quality forwards in the foreseeable future. Forsberg is likely to be one of them, more likely than not at least. So Nashville will have a top 6 forward, possible in AHL the coming season and might be in NHL the next 2 years of his contract for basically nothing. No risk with high possibility of a reward for years after those current contract years.
