I'd definitely love Kane and Little on the Preds. Don't see either happening though, at some point you just concede that the only way the Preds will have a dynamic scorer on the roster is through the draft (Radulov, Hornqvist, Wilson maybe).
Also, I expect any scoring forwards to price themselves out of Nashville once they become UFA. The team will pony up the cash to keep defensemen (Weber, Suter) and maybe a goalie (Rinne, depends on if they learned a lesson from letting Vokoun go). But they believe the forwards are easier to replenish.
And there is some truth to that, some of the Preds best offensive contributions have been from newcomers, seemingly before they get fully invested in the system which we have an endless argument going on how the defense first approach hampers offensive production.
Anyhow, welcome to Smashville CWS and Thomas Magnum! Hopefully more of your Thrashers refugees will walk on their new contracts and end up here with us!
