Broadstreet Hockey has it's major blockbuster!

The Whaler send

Eric Staal
Jiri Tlusty (retain .5m)
Tuomo Ruutu
Elias Lindholm
Nathan Gerbe

to Columbus for

Nathan Horton
Brandon Dubinsky
Artem Anisimov
Boone Jenner
Tim Erixon

This deal completely changes the landscape of both teams, but also helps immensely for both sides. Columbus gets a legitimate 1C to play with Gaborik, a couple great 2nd line additions in Tlusty and Ruutu, a top 9 winger in Gerbe, and an upcoming 3C in Elias Lindholm.

For the Whalers, Horton becomes their top line winger. They also get a solid 2C/top 6 forward in Anisimov/Dubinsky, an upcoming 3C in Jenner, and a solid top 6 LHD in Erixon.

The deal was struck after Hartford called about wanting to trade their franchise captain in Eric Staal. Columbus was quick to make this become a deal that will go down for the ages.
