It’s fully estrablished now that the Nashville Predators are going to make a move or two this offseason. They have too much cap space to not be aggressive.
After getting swept in the playoffs, there’s too much of a need to do something. The front office can’t sit idly when there’s an opportunity to make sizable upgrades to the roster quick.
The Predators are a team that would benefit more from a trade than free agency signing this summer, and we know about players such as David Pastrnak and Alex DeBrincat who might be available for trade. Those should absolutely be Poile’s first targets, but even if he misses on them, there are other under-the-radar options to consider.
Don’t get me wrong, it would be a disappointment if the Predators can’t acquire one of the bigger name trade targets this offseason. But if they were to get one of the players on this list, it would still be beneficial.
