Poile isn't the type of GM to jump into a trade without exhausting all other options first. Trust us on this.

This year's defense will be much more talented than last years no matter which 2 of the four rookies make it.

Blum improved that 2nd pairing by leaps and bounds.

Josi is as good as Blum and at worst can easily replace Franson. O'Brien will easily be replaced by Ekholm or Laakso either one.

The Predators have so many top defensive prospects that are ready to go, our defense will not be "thin", what it might lack in experience it will far make up for in talent. Besides, Weber and Suter play 25-30 a game, 2nd pairing will play near 20 minutes a game leaving little playing time for the bottom pairing.

Ellis could also make the team as a pp specialist.

Once again, they dumped 7 million uninsured dollars and all they gave up is a defenseman who needs to make major adjustments in his game to become top 4 quality and is highly redundant in their system with Blum and Ellis knocking on the door. Would you sign Franson for 2 years 4 million per? I'd guess not.

lol. It's Franson that you got wrong. He's nothing special.

Why are they waiving Lebda? The guy has to play for Nashville this season just so they can play his theme song while he's on the ice. I know the video in the link is marked as somebody else's theme, but believe me, it's Brett Lebda's.

People are allowed to have an opinion different from yours about your team. Not every prospect/rookie works out and having that much inexperience on your blueline could be a big mistake.

According to HFboards fans, no team has any holes on it whatsoever and any prospect penciled into a lineup can "easily" replace or surpass what departed players did.

I'm guessing it doesn't always work out that way in real life.

Sloan was a Milwaukee signing, replacing Aaron johnsons role last season. Defense looks like:

Weber Suter
Blum Klein
Josi Ellis/Ekholm
Bouillon

Doesn't matter. You can still use the buyout period if you settle early. That happened with NJ they settled with both Parise and Fraser and still got an additional buyout period.

That's what BB was wondering. Only Weber went, and that's all it took for 12.3(a)

Yes, but if you guys don't sign Sloan, Lebda likely fills that role instead of TFS. So he was replaced by Sloan.

Another case of Franson is good till he is traded
