Offering a coveted prospect?
Juuso Parssinen is technically the only prospect on this list. The 2019 draft pick is playing for TPS in Finland’s Liiga, where he has a team-leading 31 points in 37 games, two less than Islanders’ 2021 2nd-round pick Aatu Raty.
Parssinen’s contract will have two seasons remaining on it after the current one, carrying an AAV of $850k. It is likely that he makes the jump to North America next season to adjust to the different style of game played in the AHL and NHL, as he has a good amount of European pro hockey experience with this being his third full season in the Liiga.
Many of the big name players who are available would require a return of a first round pick, a roster player or two and a prospect.
Depending on the assets involved, Parssinen may be the perfect prospect to include, so if the Predators make a splash on a big name, don’t be surprised if he ends up going the other way.
