Predators GM David Poile is a gambling man. The team was build by developing youth and draft-picks and seasoned with some accomplished veterans…but, even though the Preds are the best in the West (Western Conference) and near the top of the entire league, too many fans disguised as empty seats are still appearing regularly.
So, Poile uproots some ‘youts‘, and ships em’ to Philly for famed and talented center – Peter Forsberg. This could be the move to get Nashville steaming towards the Stanley….on the other hand, Forsberg has fostered more than one foot injury this season, and he’s becoming known for his ailments, but on the other hand….
Forsberg is damn good. Kudos to Poile for pulling the trigger**
*’According to Hoyle’ means according to the norm. This move was a gamble. Mainly I wanted a rhyme, this time. Is that a crime?
** Unless of course Forsberg is injured in his second game and is lost for the rest of the season which will be followed in turn by torrents of second guessing
