    this out of nowhere stuff is gonna take some time to get used to

    edit: as for the trade itself can't say I know a ton about him but seems decent enough,low risk medium reward kinda thing

    Uh, alright. Why do we need a journeyman winger, though?

    Very outta the blue but Yzerman must know him and like him. Hes only 24, fairly gritty and is 6'1, 215 lbs. Not sure the offense will ever come around with him but he could be a good third liner thats tough to play in the playoffs

    Cool. Yzerman/Verbeek must like him. Didn't Yzerman said they might add a winger later in the summer when he discussed the Filppula signing with the media?

    He’s going to be a 20G 40 point player like Ferland... Erne is good

    jeez. Can't say I like this deal much.
    We need another grind line left-handed forward?
    Hope this means someone else is moving out.

    Erne is a current RFA, fresh off his first full NHL season in which he amassed 7 G and 20 points in 65 NHL games. He should see a slight raise off his recent 1 year, 800k deal. Seems like solid value for a 4th round pick.

    Well that would be a very nice outcome. Even if he stagnates though 20 points isn't bad for a gritty fourth line winger.

    He's a pretty good punching bag at least. Only gave up a 4th for a AHL/NHL tweener. He can fill in when there are injuries.

    Really?
    Dudes 24 and has more offensive upside than DLR and Ehn combined 5 times over. He's no world beater but good value for a fourth round pick.

    I know hindsight is 20/20, but Sadowy was acquired for a 3rd and never played past the AHL.
    Erne is traded for a 4th and has seen some NHL time. Seems like a legit deal.

    4th line level guy at Tampa... potential 3rd liner for us.

    Also those two mentioned can easily be waived and forgotten about, and poor Colin Campbell or Dominik Shine would lose their regular spot, what a big deal!

    My gut is this was a cap casualty "break glass in case of emergency" type of deal from Tampa with the Point negotiations. Not to say it was him or Point, but Erne had enough value to return a mid round pick and clear a little breathing room.

    He was likely an Yzerman pick, and Yzerman probably knows his game just as well as anyone in the business. This is a very cheap pick up with very little downside to it.
