The Nashville Predators enter the 2024 offseason with a lot of salary cap flexibility and bargain contracts to put General Manager Barry Trotz in prime position to be aggressive going into his second year leading the front office.

There are six unrestricted free agents Trotz must come to terms with first; Alexandre Carrier leads that list to keep the Predators defensive corps intact from last season.

How about the bargain contracts that Trotz has to his advantage? These can be easy to move in a trade, or can provide added bonus to the 2024-25 roster while allowing room to add more.

Now this list is about contracts going into 2024-25, so for example, Tommy Novak won't be on here despite being one of the most cost efficient players in the NHL last season based on cost per point. His pay bumps up from $800,000 to $3.5 million in 2024-25.

Undoubtedly the Predators need to add more scoring and offensive pop if they're going to remain playoff competitive in Head Coach Andrew Brunette's second year as the bench boss in Smashville.

So with that laid out there, here are my top five bargain contracts currently on the Nashville Predators heading into the 2024 offseason.
