Although Phil Villeneuve will be on the ice for the Super Cup, his mind will not be in attendance.


Just before the Super Cup draft, it was announced that Riga and Seattle where making a trade to switch Villeneuve for a couple of second rounders. 


This was widely regarded as a big move for Seattle and top historians even went as far to say that Seattle raped the trade: 



Underpaid tbh.


Regardless, Riga got some good picks out of the deal that will help them with the rebuild cause and Seattle, in return, get a veteran defenseman to help launch them into a string of competitive Cup seasons.


Villeneuve's mind is swimming with the changes and adjustments he'll have to make. He's spent his entire VHL career in Riga and so will undoubtedly suffer some severe culture shock by crossing the pond to NA..
