Top 4 Dman to Nashville

Poile and Trotz expressed a need for "plan B" after Suter chose to sign with Minnesota. For the time being, Roman Josi will play with Weber on the top pair. While Josi likely is the heir apparent to Suter, I'm not sure he's ready for that just yet.

There were rumors back in the summer that Nashville had talked to both Pittsburgh(Martin) and Calgary(Bouwmeester), and had also attempted to sign Matt Carle before he signed with TB.

The Predators have roughly the money they had earmarked for Suter in the budget, so dollar amount shouldn't concern them. They likely don't want someone signed to an overly long-term contract, since Josi likely WILL be ready in the next 2 years or so.

Prospects and picks likely going to be the returnable assets, as I know the Predators were pleased to be returning most of their forward corps from last season-- one which contributed to the number one PP in the NHL and the 8th best GF.

Make an offer!
