Do you really trade your young blue chipper for two underachieving, overpaid & regressing players?
You do realize Forsberg was slipped to 9th or 11th pick in the draft when he was projected as a 3rd? and Washington traded him for just ERAT? that means there were 8 to 10 other teams that foresaw Forsberg being overrated at the draft and Washington later found out that they screwed up one of their 1st picks in the 1st round.
Desharnais for Forsberg straight up is questionable, since DD has had average first-line numbers couple years ago. Adding Briere who becomes x2 during playoffs doesn't hurt. Poile would have to be crazy not to accept this, its just Berg that wouldn't do it since he likes Desharnais and signed Briere to two years.
Also Poile kept the same coach since the start of the franchise.. just to have that record I presume. however, with this trade + coaching change + trading Shea Weber would get them back in shape again. Just a suggestion ya know.
