Scott Walker Traded to Carolina

Scott Walker, the Nashville Predators' all-time leading scorer, was traded today to the Carolina Hurricanes for center Josef Vasicek.

I've made some jokes about the "pink stick" and everything, but this trade just floors me.

Scott was the last of the "original" Predators players - the ones who were on the ice when Nashville played game number one in the NHL on October 10, 1998.

This trade is right up there with the Dunham trade, the Fitzgerald trade, and the Ronning trade as ones that we never saw coming.

Well, actually, we kinda knew it might happen - but didn't expect it to happen now.

This is going to take a while to process.
