Despite many rumors of potential trades, the Nashville Predators and GM David Poile were fairly quiet on trade deadline day. Let’s break it down.

The trade deadline has come and gone. The dust has settled. Your favorite Nashville Predators are in fact, still Nashville Predators. Despite many rumors about trades involving players like Evander Kane, Erik Karlsson, Tomas Tatar, and others, the Predators made no blockbuster moves on Monday.

Personally, I am relieved.

I think the Predators already have everything they need to make a run at the Stanley Cup. The offense can be deadly, the blue line is stout, and the goaltending duo is arguably the best in hockey. With that, I think Poile did exactly what he needed to do yesterday.

He added depth in the farm system and improved the current roster.

Poile did not need to do much of anything today to help the organization, however, he did make a few moves that help the team both now, and in the future.
