Do you guys really think we're buyers? I think it's too early to tell; judging from how things have been going, we could very easily be sellers.

From yesterday's ESPN article:

"We're uncharacteristically not playing what I would call Predators hockey," Poile said.

The team's 9-9-5 record that has them outside the playoff bracket in the Western Conference is indicative of where the team is at, Poile said. And it's not good enough.

The next three weeks leading up to the April 3 trade deadline will be nervous times for the Nashville organization, and Poile has told his team as much.

"We've got to do it soon," he said. "No, not soon, we've got to do it now."

The GM recently issued a challenge to his players: give him a reason to be a buyer on April 3.

"And for your sake, don't put me in a position where I'm a seller," he said in retelling the message he conveyed to his team.
Thus far they certainly haven't given him a reason to be a buyer. Maybe we should be talking about which of our guys are moveable for picks or prospects instead of what serviceable players we might be able to get.
