Think about it...with the two-year rule in effect meaning that if Laakso doesn't sign with the Predators this summer he becomes a free agent that would mean that any of the other 29 teams that expressed interest could say something along the lines of "don't sign with Nashville, they have too many defensemen that you will be stuck behind and you will only wind up riding the bus in Milwaukee. Look at where Lehtonen and Koistinen played this season. We have an immediate need for you and you will get a shot right out of camp if you sign with us."
