Nashville Predators: Five Intriguing Free Agents They Should Be Pursuing
It’s already been a very productive and busy offseason for the Nashville Predators, and it’s probably not over yet as free agency opens up on Wednesday.
The biggest priority of the offseason has already been taken care of as the Predators managed to re-sign their all-time leading goal scorer Filip Forsberg to an eight-year, $68M contract. We can all collectively exhale after seeing this finally get done.
Additionally, the Predators made a significant trade for Ryan McDonagh to solidify their defensive core, and extended qualifying offers to restricted free agents, most notably Yakov Trenin.
After all of this, the Predators currently have just over $9.6M of projected cap space, per CapFriendly. A fair amount to still pursue a middle-six winger to round out their starting lineup.
Here are five free agents that the Nashville Predators should be able to afford with their remaining cap space that would put a stamp on what’s been a rather successful offseason.
