Seabrook is only 32, he's not Sedin old, but I'm not surprised he's sucking large. A very overrated player given a ridiculous contract. I remember Bubbles saying he wouldn't mind trading for Seabrook not too long ago.
Correct, he's not Sedin old, but he's played nearly as much. Over 1,000 NHL games and over 24,600 minutes (Sedins are between 23,500-24,600 minutes played).
Remember when he signed the extension? Blackhawks were coming off a SC win and he put up 39 points in year 1 of the deal. While there's no doubt they anticipated his decline over the course of the deal, I don't think they expected Seabrook to go from top-pairing, top-4 to healthy scratch this quickly.

I would trade Eriksson for virtually ANYone or ANYthing.
Swap a shitty contract sure - just so long as I don't have to watch Eriksson any more. The only places I want to see LE is in the press box or on a flight out of YVR.
I'm not sure I would swap it for Seabrook. At this point they are both terrible deals. The depressing thing is these were supposed to be the "good" years of the LE deal. Hopefully he can rejuvenate himself, because the "bad" years towards the end of his deal could be real ugly...
