David Poile looks like a guy who is mighty happy, relieved, and doesn't want to show any glowing emotions because he feels a little bad he had to trade Seth Jones. But Ryan Johansen has to feel like the white whale he's been chasing for over a decade.
Poile: We accomplished something we haven't been able to do in 18 years. We got a first line center. #Preds— Thomas Willis (@TomAWillis) January 7, 2016
David Legwand could not be reached for comment.
Poile: Last night was not the tipping point. We've been talking about this deal for a while. #Preds— Thomas Willis (@TomAWillis) January 7, 2016
No kidding. Did you see how emo we were last night/this morning? We agreed.
Poile: Seth will always be one of my favorite players. He will be missed. #Preds— Thomas Willis (@TomAWillis) January 7, 2016
Agreed again. Seth Jones is a class act and a class human being. If Tortorella screws this kid up, I'll never forgive him.
