That doesn't have me convinced that he's going to be an Erat upgrade, let alone replacement.

There is a vast, vast difference between "he's not an Erat upgrade" and "he should never have been acquired". I think he's an excellent add for the Preds; I just think that expectations of what he does add and can add should be kept realistic. Saying he's an upgrade on Erat is unrealistic. But an Erat upgrade isn't needed - that's what Forsberg is here for.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
