It's going to be a volatile next month leading up to the trade deadline for the Nashville Predators, which is a team still searching for if they're a playoff contender or in rebuild mode.
The Predators are just two points outside of the Western Conference wildcard picture after losing six of their last eight games and going through an awful stretch of below average offense.
However, it's not all doom and gloom here. Salary cap wise the Predators are in a strong position for the 2024 offseason to reload, but first they have to tackle the March 8 trade deadline and deal with several free agents.
The Predators have plenty of tradeable assets right now, but they lack the high prize free agents that really get the market interested. A lot of depth players and unproven players. It really comes down to three high value trade pieces that the Predators will have to deal if they're really going to make out like bandits at this year's trade deadline.
