Forsberg traded to Nashville for Ryan Parent, Scottie Upshall, 1st and 3rd

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.

The deal will not be official until the completion of a trade call with the NHL.

Forsberg was on the ice for warm-ups for Thursday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, but he was scratched from the lineup.

In 40 games with the Flyers this season Forsberg has 11 goals and 29 assists. He is also leads the Flyers with a +2 plus/minus rating.

Forsberg has missed 16 games with a variety of injuries this season including a concussion, an injured groin and a sore back.

I understand Parent but why Upshall? What does he do for the flyers except take York's spot in the lineup?

Part of me, yes. But realistically, we're in need of d-men not forwards.

TSN doesn't mess around. It's official. They wouldn't put it on the site.

Some detials are sketchy abou the 1st and 3 round picks. Apparently it's a 1st if he signs with Nashville and a third if he doesn't. The two players though, Parent and Upshall are in.

getting rid of the aging forsberg for,

upshall, parent, a first, and a third, is a great step towards rebuilding for next season. you guys have an ass load of cap space for the offseason as well. im thinking this will be your only year in the basement.

Parent might be fighting with Richards for the 'C.'

If the first is conditional, then I'm ****ing pissed.

Agreed. He's also the most ideal partner for Pitkanen you can imagine. He's defense all the way. His partner in junior is already a mini-Pitkanen (Drew Doughty) so he's well prepared for playing with a roaming partner..

TSN has Upshall's potential as a career third line agitator. I think we have enough of those thank you very much.

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We've added a first round pick, we've added a stud prospect d man to the team, and we've added a true checking forward born to wear the orange and black. I think we've just created our checking line of Eager-Richards-Upshall and we can actually allow Downie to concentrate on playing hockey.

Parent will eventually become a Scott Hannan type and with the first round pick, we can do some good things with it, especially if a team wants to deal up from the second round and they've got multiple second round picks.

I'm loving it. Now, it's time to see what we get for Hatcher.

I read it as the 1st is automatic and the 3rd might be conditional as it would become another 1st if he signs. That's in the original report though when they were saying it was a 2nd so maybe there isn't a condition. I don't see why the Flyers would want to add in such a condition when they themselves want him back.

Sick sick sick sick return. I laugh at all the trolls that told us we wouldn't get a good prospect and a 1st together. 2 real good prospects and a 1st AND other pick. I think I just fell in love with Holmgrem.

I'd also like to congradulate the Nashville Predators on their Stanley Cup victory.

ive heard from friends that Parent is supposed to be a future top 4, should have no problem getting into that role, if he continues to progress the way he does maybe a top 2! that would be awesome

upshall used to play for kamloops and is a born captain. expect him to give richards a run for his money. hes a richards that can score. at least in the minors he did havent really followed him since he went Pro. hope that helps some. I feel VERY good about this trade. Especially if he comes back!!!

Love it. Another WJC Gold Medalist (with Downie) in 06. We now have 2 first picks, 20+ million under the cap. If we can dump Hatcher, we will be back in the picture next season.
