So a long while back I asked b00ts if they wanted to do a trade with me since they make AMAZING dolls.
I asked them to make Eno from Monsterkind, and this is the wonderful thing they just sent me.
Oh my gosh you guys I am so excited you don’t even know.

WHOA.

Nashville Predators General Manager David Poile strikes again.

Jerred Smithson, who had been a healthy scratch at times this season thanks to the talent depth at the forward position, has been traded to the Florida Panthers in exchange for a sixth round draft choice.

The Vernon, British Columbia native has been known for the past seven years as the “prototypical Nashville Predator.” Head Coach Barry Trotz once said that he would love to have 20 Jerred Smithson’s on his hockey club. However, with the talent level at the forward position finally growing in Music City, Smithson’s time had come to an end. Players like Nick SpalingMatt Halischuk and even rookie Gabriel Bourque have emerged to offer what Smithson does and then some. And, with one more year left on his contract, some feared another buyout would occur this summer.

Then Poile came along and did what he always seems to do best: get something for nothing.

(Not that Smithson is “nothing” but you see what we’re getting at here)

Smithson will be reunited with former Predators Marcel GocScottie Upshall and Mike Santorelli.

@PredsNHL: “TRADE: #Preds have acquired a 6th-round pick in the 2012 Entry Draft in exchange for forward Jerred Smithson.”

WHOA

@JoshuaCooper: “#preds trade for Hal Gill. Give up Geoffrion, Slaney and a 2nd round pick in 2012. #preds also get a conditional 5th rounder.”

Nashville now has a big (literally) defensive presence with a Stanley Cup ring - something that no other player on this team has. He’s basically a poor man’s Chara and the best pickup the team could have realistically made.

As for Blake Geoffrion, I’m really gutted that things didn’t work out in Nashville, especially after emerging into the league in the second half of ‘10-‘11 with such poise. Maybe he’ll turn it around in the Montreal organization, who knows.
