Just received a text from my buddy on the inside:
“Insider”: Who is a foreign player on Nashville with blonde hair?
Me: Marty Erat?
“Insider”: Could be. He told one of my colleagues that Zetterberg isn’t that good and we overpaid (for him)
Ahem…overpaid for Zetterberg? How dare he talk about our next captain that way. We’ll have to have a picture lineup later with my buddy so we can find out the true identity of the verbal assailant.
Z, if you’re out there…shut ‘em up…hard.
***UPDATED 2:00 PM EST***
The culprit has been positively identified as Marty Erat.
***UPDATED AGAIN 2:30 PM EST***
I found a more fitting pic of Mr. Erat.
