EA Sports chirps Hurricanes for Jeff Skinner trade

The Carolina Hurricanes kept their changes coming, sending Jeff Skinner to the Buffalo Sabres for Cliff Pu and draft picks.

We’ve all pulled off that video game trade we feel kind of guilty about, right?

Well it might have just happened in real life.

The EA Sports NHL Twitter account threw some serious shade at the Carolina Hurricanes for the package they received from the Buffalo Sabres in Thursday’s Jeff Skinner trade.

“When you have trade difficulty set to ‘easy’, the caption read.

In exchange for Skinner, the Sabres shipped Cliff Pu and a trio of draft picks to Carolina. Do you think Buffalo GM Jason Botterill fleeced the Hurricanes in this deal? Let us know in the comments section.
