Zids plus [maybe a 2nd or 3rd pick or Upshall] for Forsberg makes the most sense to me from a value standpoint, given Zid's contract]......but I wouldn't be surprised if it is something less like Klein/Franson/or Parent, Upshall and 1st or 2nd.

I don't see Radulov being involved....UNLESS Forsberg is going to be more than a rental for the Preds AND his surgically deformed foot issue has been resolved moreso than what has been in the press.
Honestly, I can't see it though, because we aren't gonna want to eat Foppa's salary for next year.

Forsberg as a rental makes total sense though on many fronts:
-this year's long cup run, maybe even to the Stanley Cup Finals is critical to season ticket sales next year and long term viability of this franchise.
-Assuring infusion of ticket sales for the rest of the year and sellout of all Playoff games with Forsberg here.
-The Preds renting Forsberg keeps him out of Anaheim, San Jose, and Detroit.

I would bet on this one WILL happen WITHOUT disrupting our young core of Weber/Suter/Hamhuis/Radulov.
