Because we are starved for offensive talent that's the rush in people's minds-- people are looking for someone to attached to. Also, people are looking for a reason to hate Trotz/Poile so this just gives them another reason to vent.

It's great the Forseberg did well in the WJC, but it's a glorified high school tournament. He was still raw at the NHL level. Give him some time in Milwaukee against a middle ground competition to continue to develop. If he continues to do well and develop, he'll be back in Nashville shortly.
