2. Filip Forsberg

April 3, 2013 is a date that will forever be marked in Nashville Predators history. It was when the ultimate magician David Polie convinced the Washington Capitals that Filip Forsberg was worth Martin Erat & Michael Latta.

See, the Capitals are always chasing the present. They always think they’re a player away. It was a desperation move made by a team desperate to make the cup finals. Now, everybody debates whether he’s a star or not. This argument is irrelevant to me. If he leads Nashville to a Cup, he’s a star. If not, he’s on the fringe. Let’s have the season play out before we decide.
