Just to put this trade in perspective as to why some of us don't like it, here's some examples of trades where it makes it seem like the Wings got fleeced:
Moulson and McCormick for Torrey Mitchell and 2 2nd round picks.
Vanek and a 5th for Colberg and a 2nd
Meszaros for a 3rd
Gaborik for Frattin a 2nd and a 3rd
Hemsky for a 3rd and 5th
Rundblad and Brisebois for a 2nd
Luongo and Anthony for Markstrom and Matthias
Robidas for a 4th
Penner for a 4th
So to be fair, I'd say Legwand (contract expires this summer = currently a rental) for Eaves a 3rd and instead of Jarnkrok a 5th sounds like a deal ANY OTHER TEAM GOT TODAY!
Am I happy we got Legwand? Yes. Am I ok with what we gave up? No cause of Jarnkrok.
Only saving grace apparently after venting to my dad, apparently Jarnkrok was threatening to go to Sweden to play again per Malik, and getting fleeced in a trade by the Preds, we may have a future trade partner in them and he seems to think something big may be coming in the near future, possibly draft and that we're getting some centre from Russia.
