Even if Jarnkrok IS leaving for Sweden next year this is still a HUGE overpayment. Way too much of a risk. Eaves a third and Ferraro would have been more than fair.
If he decides he likes it in Nashville this trade is very likely going to haunt us for years.
True that Ferraro and a third would have been better, but that last bit about haunting us for years is a little bombastic, isn't it? I don't spend any time watching prospects in the minors, so I'm not well-informed on jarnkrok's talent...but is he really that good? It just seems like lots of people are ready to jump off the ledge right now - I know it's an accumulation of Holland's inactivity, but still. It's one trade.
