1. Erat is

3. Hes on contract for 2,5 seasons with a 4,5mill cap, when he gets paid 1.136mill, 3.750mill, 2.750mill - thats Leino-money...
4. Now he gets to play on a offensive-minded team in the East with scorers - he`s numbers will probably only rise?
Looks much better than at first glance IMO...
Erat gets younger and younger
Hes actually 31 years old(32 in august)-
He has 4 goals so far this season in 35 gp, thats a bit scaring when you know his age.
Big problem for the caps to afford to resign Ribeiro, this move is as bad as it looks, GmGm trying to reach playoffs saving his own a ss with a panic trade.
Forsberg hasnt shown any signs to regress as a elite prospect, actually he looks better then ever.
Mention it before! A week ago was GmGm very happy over Forsbergs development this year and wanted him over to finish the season in hersey.
What has happened in a week? What ever GMGM tells us afterwards hasnt any corn of truths, everyone with common sense can see what happened here,a drastic awful panic move to save GMGM own a ss!
