David Legwand - UFA

Figured this is getting big enough to warrant its own thread. With the trade deadline looming, Legwand appears to be the biggest news (aside from a returning Rinne) out of Nashville. The latest: An article posted by both jntarheels and Everlong:

As of late last week, though, the veteran center said he had not heard word one from anyone in Nashville Predators management regarding his future, either with this team or any other.

I'll bet that part of those discussions addressed Leggy's no trade clause and a list of teams he would be willing to waive his right to be traded.

The rest was typical of Poile's cautious approach at the trade deadline. Preds aren't going for a blockbuster trade because of the reduced salary cap. Looking for the right fit for the future. Need to upgrade the offense. Keeping the defense as is - not looking to trade any of the defense (though he left Bartley of the list of PMDs). The Preds best trade deadline acquisition could be Pekka.
Personally, I think he gets moved for a 1st or an organization's top-3 forward prospect (most likely not top, though).
