Nashville liked what they saw and traded for the player. They obviously value him highly enough to target him. How he slipped in the draft is completely irrelevant.

Players slip in the draft all the time.

.... Seriously? A blue chipper for a guy who struggles even with sheltered minutes. Think about it.
Desharnais has little to no trade value as it stands, but suddenly he can fetch Forsberg?

Is this bizzaro world?

If you were Poile, would you honestly accept this trade? Let's say the salary cap suddenly disappeared and this trade would be legal, would you actually do it? Be honest.
