How many NHL teams would you be willing to trade the Preds for? I'm talking everything except fanbase, location, ownership, and arena (so roster, coaches, front office, scouts, etc.) Mostly, this is about which teams have better rosters than us, but also factoring in the coaching staff and front office. For me:
Would trade for:
Columbus (very close)
Philadelphia (Holmgren would be entertaining at least)
Maple Leafs (very close)
Would not trade for:
Dallas (very close)
Florida (young players make it very close)
So I have us ranked as the #22 team as far as players+staff go. Not good....
Considering that at the end of the day we've still made the playoffs the last 7 of 9 years, I wouldn't trade for a whole lot of them. That doesn't happen by accident.
I really like the players and am still one of those rare Trotz / Poile fans. I wouldn't trade them for anyone.
Nashville: Weber, Rinne, Jones, Josi, Wilson, Smith, Fisher, Hornqvist, Klein
Carolina: Staal, Staal, Skinner, Semin, Faulk, Lindholm, ward
Colorado: Duchene, Landeskog, Mackinnon, ROR, EJ, Varlamov, Barrie
Columbus: Gaborik, Bobrovski, Anisimov, JJ, Tyutin, Murray...ok maybe not this.
Minnesota: Suter, Parise, Koivu, Pomminville, Brodin, Granlund, Dumba, Coyle,
Montreal: Subban, Markov, Paciorrety, Price, Eller, Gallagher, Plekanec, Galchenyuk, Tinordi, Gorges
Philadelphia: Giroux, Voracek, Couturier, Simmonds, Lecavalier, Schenn, Schenn, Coburn, Hartnell,
Phoenix: OEL, Yandle, Ribiero, Doan, Vrbata, Smith, Rundblad, GormleyTIPPET, MALONEY
Lightning: Stamkos, St. Louis, Drouin, Hedman, Bishop, Flippula (The top 4 give them the edge IMO, but close)
Maple Leafs: Kessel, Lupul, JVR, Kadri, Phaneuf, Gardiner, Reilly, Kulemin
Captials: Ovechkin, Backstrom, Alzner, Green, Karlsson, Mojo, Grabovski,
A few are close, but I would probably switch with any of them. I see where you disagree on some.
I would switch with buffalo. They will be exciting in the future
Columbus or the Leafs? Are you kidding Top 6?:shakehead
Maybe overreacting just a tad? Y'all are still ahead of us in the standings.

Also, your Nashville list seems to be missing Forsberg.
