6/29/02 Dallas Stars traded Cameron Mann and the rights to Ed Belfour to the Nashville Predators for David Gosselin and a 5th round selection (Eero Kilpelainen) in 2003

Belfour never played for Nashville, he became a free agent in July and signed with Toronto. Nashville received a compensatory pick, the 49th pick in the 2003, which became our Captain, Shea Weber.

Cameron Mann played 4 games in the NHL

Eero Kilpelainen never did.

Gosselin never made it back to the NHL
Stuff like this makes me excited for the draft. Say what you will about Poile, but the man can draft with the best of 'em. Outside of Enstrom (6th round), Waddell had so many swing and misses (outside of nobrainer picks; ex: Kovy).
