Finally, let’s discuss the most possible of the three, the Boston Bruins. The big one is David Pastrnak for Roman Josi. This would be a great trade for both teams. The Predators would get instantly better on offense while the Bruins would get instantly better on defense. Bruins management has come out and said that Pastrnak isn’t being traded under any circumstances.
But Predators fans have heard this before and made out like bandits the last time it happened (thank god for P.K. Subban). Josi would be a god send on that Bruins blue line as he would anchor their power play, penalty kill, and first line. David Pastrnak would allow the Predators to break up the JoFA line without worrying about decreased production from the new first line. He’d add a cool seventy points per season and would likely make just below what Johansen is making. He’s an all situations player who would thrive anywhere on that line-up.
