Erat requested a trade. Pierre LeBrun wrote the Caps soured on Forsberg.

And yes, perhaps GM George McPhee could have gotten more had he waited until the summer to shop Forsberg fully to the league. You see, I believe the Caps were going to trade Forsberg at some point no matter what, internally souring on the prospect, a player they no longer viewed as a top center in the making.

Scouts Iíve spoken with have mixed opinions. Some still view him as a top center in the making, at least a No. 2, but others are concerned by his foot speed. The latter is what concerned Washington.

Calgary got back a conditional #1 pick for Bouwmeester. Everyone expected much more. Detroit wasn't interested in anyone else besides Bouwmeester. They didn't offer a #1 for Bouwmeester.

Quote:
In return, the Flames got a first-round pick and two prospects -- defenseman Mark Cundari and goaltender Reto Berra.

If St. Louis does not qualify for this year's playoffs, the Flames will receive St. Louis' fourth-round selection in this summer's draft, with the first-round pick being deferred to 2014.
