General manager David Poile said he had a number of meetings with Erat, who ranks second all-time in most of the franchise's offensive categories, to make sure the request was not being made on an emotional basis. When Poile was satisfied it was not, he took 24 hours to consummate a deal with the Washington Capitals, satisfying Erat's demands.
Wednesday, Erat waived a no-movement clause allowing Nashville to trade him along with minor-league center Michael Latta for top prospect Filip Forsberg.
"I can't sugarcoat it," Poile said of Erat's request. "It's really disappointing."
