Forsberg Traded to Nashville
Yesterday, the Toronto Maple Leafs faced the Philadelphia Flyers. The Leafs won 4-2, but on the Flyer's side , they lost so much more than 2 points.
Peter Forsberg was finally traded on Thursday, just before the Flyers game against the Leafs. Forsberg even took the warm-up skate but was then traded to the Nashville Predators. The Flyers actually made an almost even trade picking up Scottie Upshall, Ryan Parent and a 1st and 3rd round draft pick. Depending on how the draft picks turn out, than this trade might swing in the Flyers favor.
This trade is huge for the Predators, who are 1st in the Western Conference, but only have deep playoff experience Paul Kariya, Jason Arnott, Steve Sullivan and now Peter Forsberg. A funny thing about Forberg, is that he has more playoff points(162) and Stanley Cups(2) than all of the Nashville Franchise combined(155 points and 1 Stanley Cup). Forsberg will make his debut will the Predators tonight against ST. Louis.
So what do I really think about this trade... well I think that the Predators will be going deep into the playoffs.
