Sources tell TSN the Nashville Predators have agreed to trade Scottie Upshall, Ryan Parent, a first round pick and a third round pick to the Philadelphia Flyers for Peter Forsbeg

Steep price for a rental but this pushes Nashville into the realm of HEAVY Cup favorites (as opposed to just "Cup favorites")...their line up with Forsberg is just sick.

This is what is going to happen this year..

Whichever Canadian team gets in at the lowest seed in the East.. will make a faery-tale run to the stanley cup finals.. Only to get ousted in game 7 by Nashville.

It will be like Tampa Bay vs. Calgary
Carolina vs. Edmonton.

So glad the Habs didn't try to pull a deal like this off for an injured rental.

Price is steep but still...their First rounder is surely going to be in late 20's....almost a 2nd and a 4th...still I would not have paid that to see Forsberg as a hab.

Equivalent deal from Montreal would be Lapierre (or a young Begin), Fischer, 1st and 2nd (since Fischer < Parent, at least IMO).

That's a big price tag, and a great return for Philly. Nashville looks real scary now.

we couldn't afford to pay that much for a rental .i thought Nashville had a good shot at the cup anyhow..

Southern market us team, having attendance troubles. does sound familiar. win the cup attendance problem solved. lol

I don't buy the conspiracy.. but i guess we'll see they haven't won anything yet. If it happened again next after this i'd begin to wonder
i'd call it a coincidence or that they are so desperate to win the cup from a financial(attendance)perspective. they are much more willing to mortgage the future for short term gain. which i can understand because if they can't increase attendance and overall interest in the team they would probably have to relocate at some point. these teams were also bottom feeders for quite a few years so they've had many more top ten picks than most teams. Who are becoming key players on there team

i think its more to do with those factors

Well, Nashville certainly had everything going for them to make such a deal... the cap room so that they didn't have to pass back a headache (e.g. our Samsonov/Niinimaa requirements)... the calibre of roster that they could legitimately pay the world for a Cup shot... tons of excellent D prospects (Parent is better than any defense prospect we have)... etc.

Basically, this deal from us would be Price, 1st, 3rd, and a young roster player, let's say Perezhogin or Plekanec.

No way I would have given up that for Forsberg. I think we have 17 games left after the trade deadline? Ok, or even just 23 now? That's WAAAAAY too much for us to give up for the rental.

Of course, now we can just try to re-sign Forsberg in the summer, eh? Hopefully Nashville locks him up quickly so we can nip those imminent threads in the bud too.
