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.

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.
confirm
