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.
haha very true, PLUS with Forsberg gone you guys have secured a pretty high draft spot...
so its Forsberg for Upshall, Parent, 1st, 3rd and a guaranteed lottery pick..
I'm a Nashville fan who's seen a lot of games. Alas, don't have the season tix the last few years though, but still go a lot.
I know Forsberg is huge, and you folks will miss him. But I really like Upshall and think he's going to keep improving and be a good player for a long time. He was behind a lot of other skill players, although I didn't agree with that. I was also really looking forward to getting Parent up here. Followed his progression with a lot of excitement. Could be the best part of the deal. And a 1st and 3rd? Wow, if it's true.
So initially I was miffed that we gave up so much for a possible rent a player. But, Forsberg! Geesh. I'm seeing what games I can get right after this, invite my Dad down... Awesome.
I'm pretty stoked after all. Could be a very nice trade for both sides.
