Thursday night, the Hurricanes dealt Jeff Skinner to the Sabres and the return for Skinner surprised a lot of fans and not in a good way.

Many thought the Hurricanes got the short end of the deal with the Sabres as they received a prospect selected in the third round of the 2016 draft and three draft picks, none of which are in the first round.

Fans pointed these facts out to criticize the Hurricanes, but as far as tweets go, EA Sports NHL 19 had the best of the best as they fired a shot Carolina's way.



Did @easportsnhl just throw shade at the Hurricanes? 😳👀 @bardown

No chill.  None.  Zero.  Nada.

Gut reactions when it comes to trade are dangerous because you just never know what can happen and who the draft picks Carolina got back will turn into or how Skinner will produce for the rest of his career.

That said, people feel pretty comfortable ripping the Hurricanes for the return they got and it's easy to understand why.
