First Big Trade
Today it was announced that the Nashville Predators had acquired forward prospect Patrice Cormier and goaltender Ondrej Pavelec from our Las Vegas Bandits. In exchange for these players we will receive vetran(COUGH..OLD) defenseman Francis Boulion and goaltender Pekka Rinne.
I am not sure if this trade helped the Bandits any. What did we gain? Sure Pavy wasn’t always the most clutch goalie, but can Rinne be any better? Francis Boulion won’t make the top 6 d-men, and Patrice Cormier is one of our better prospects(not that we could get any younger). We are just going to have to see if Rinne was worth Pavy.
