Hmm, pretty wishy washy deadline for the dogs. Erat improves our top 12 forward corp. Should slot in with Vrbata and Hanzal to form an all-Czech line.
Meanwhile, Vanek goes to Montreal for a prospect and a bag of pucks and Moulson lands in Minnesota for a prospect and a bag of pucks. Rentals? Likely, but man, either one of those guys would have vastly improved the dogs. Erat gives us a Tippett-style player who will play a 200 foot game but... can't see him doing a Stempniak or anything down the stretch.
