Well, I guess he's a forward upgrade - better than half the guys on the roster. Perhaps he'll fit in with fellow Czechs Vrbata and Hanzal? Meh.
Another positive is he'll understand Coach Tip's system, being a former Predator/Trotz disciple.

having scored the same amount of goals as Mike Smith in over 50 games this season... :slap:

I kid, I kid, ... Erat's play has been declining over the last couple of season's but maybe he can get fellow Czech Vrbata going for the stretch run?!

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. :yawn:
