2023 NHL Trade Deadline: Grading Every Nashville Predators Trade
With just one day before the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline, the Nashville Predators have already traded four players in the last five days as they continue one of the biggest sell-offs in franchise history.
Amid overwhelming calls from the fanbase, the Nashville Predators front office now led by new General Manager Barry Trotz and former General Manager, and still consulter, David Poile. The duo and long-time colleagues and friends have been aggressive with selling key veterans and acquiring future assets in return.
This is all about letting the chips fall where they may in regards to this current season’s playoff hopes. Could they still go on a run and make it in? Sure, but this is all about the broader picture going the next several years.
Let’s review and grade all four trades the Nashville Predators have pulled off so far, and they might not even be done just yet. They could very well have one more major splash to make, but I’ll speculate about that to close out.
