Segal to Tampa; Fornataro to Chicago

The Chicago Blackhawks have traded Brandon Segal to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Matt Fornataro. Segal, 28 has played over 70 NHL games and totals 20 points while Fornataro, who is 26 has no NHL experience.

Mahbod: I think the Lightning came out on top on this deal. Fornataro is 26 and still hasn't made his NHL debut and will most likely spend the rest of his career in the minors. Brandon Segal is a nice little mid-aged player to have scratched or in the minors so that when he comes up to fill in for an injured player, he can play with more confidence because of his prior experience.

Kyle: I Agree with Mahbod since Segal can be the emergency call up if there is an injury to any player on the NHL roster. He has NHL experience so that makes him get picked earlier for a call up than an untested rookie.
