... Rich Peverley and Tyler Seguin right now are a combined 24 points in Dallas. Seguin has 16 points in 17 games and Peverley 8 in 16. I think it's fair to say that these players are more or less playing to the pace of their expectations. Reilly Smith and Loui Eriksson have combined for 17 points in Boston. Smith has 11 points in 17 games, while Eriksson has 6 in 12. I think it's fair to say that Smith is more or less playing to the pace of his expectations, while Eriksson could feasibly improve on his start in Boston. I start this poll and this thread for two reasons: 1) To frame the context of the trade in a different light. I have been iffy about it and stated as such, but I feel as though I'm starting to come around on it. Remember of course, that we still have Fraser (13 games, 11 goals) and Morrow (13 games, 10 points - high end defense prospect) playing in Providence. I feel as though the talk has devolved into the Eriksson/Seguin swap... Which is inaccurate and totally unfair. 2) To filter talk about the trade to one thread, to the extent that one can expect. Seems like whenever one wants to talk about Eriksson, they end up conversing about this deal. I don't expect it ALL to be concentrated here. But it would help cleaning up the other threads if we made an attempt to save our best for the most appropriate place. So... What does everyone think?
