Predators looking to add a forward -- Sabres\Flyers?

Poile has said since the beginning of July that he'd like to add a top six forward and has budget room to do so, but wasn't enamored with what was available on the free agent market this summer. We know that the Flyers and Predators love to hook up on deals, and the Flyers sit at ~200K below the cap.

Any Flyers\Sabres fans want to make a proposal? Here's the article:
PREDATORS LOOKING TO ADD FLYERS?

Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz told John Manasso of Fox Sports Tennessee that GM David Poile isn't done looking at adding players to bolster their roster, though it would have to be “the right players.”

Trotz cited the February acquisition of center Mike Fisher from the Ottawa Senators made it possible for the Predators to clinch a playoff berth. He claimed Poile was on the lookout for “the next Mike Fisher,” which could be interpreted as finding another skilled two-way forward.

Manasso observed the Predators have approximately $14.2 million in cap space this season and suggested the Buffalo Sabres (sitting nearly $3.6 million over the $64.3 million cap ceiling) and Philadelphia Flyers (with only $175,000 in available space) are possible trade targets.

Remembering the Flyers and Predators had a trade history, Manasso suggested the possibility of acquiring either right wingers Max Talbot or Wayne Simmonds or reacquiring former Predator left winger Scott Hartnell.

While Nashville has a lot of cap space, it'll be surprising if this cost-conscious club spends half their room over the course of the season.

The Flyers current cap space fails to take into account Ian Laperriere and his $1.2 million salary, which will be going on long-term injury reserve to start the season.

If Flyers GM Paul Holmgren were inclined to make a cost-cutting trade, it probably won't involve Talbot or Simmonds, who were acquired over the off-season. Hartnell remains a key member of the Flyers core and also carries a no-trade clause.

Hartnell also recently had a health scare when he suffered an elevated heart rate after the second period of a pre-season game against Detroit and is slated to see a cardiologist this week.

As for the Sabres, they placed veteran right winger Ales Kotalik ($3 million) and defenseman Shaone Morrisonn ($2.1 million) on waivers and it's expected they'll either be demoted to the minors or loaned to European teams. Either way, moving their salaries will put the Sabres comfortably under the cap without having to give up a quality player via trade.

Pominville fits your description of a strong two way forward in the top 6. Not sure if the Preds would want him for his salary though. I also doubt Buffalo would move him unless it was an overpayment.

What forward position do the Preds want? We have Comeau available who's a RW and would definitely fit with the Preds on the 2nd line if a defenseman is coming back to the Islanders.

Hartnell would make sense if he is healthy...maybe Couturier gets a spot?

Preds can have Hagman if they want. Trotz will whip his ass into shape.

I think the Predators would have definite interest in Hartnell, since he was basically yanked away as a parting gift of Craig Leipold in 2007, I guess it depends on how serious Hartnell's heart deal is.

That could make sense, there is always Parenteau as well. Comeau is better though, and would probably come at the same cost.

Hartnell's back working out and apparently doing OK. Still is going to get a stress test to be safe, but looks to be fine. But the Flyers need his size.

Come on, Nashville doesn't roll with top six forwards. Two way third line forwards all the way. You can have Horcoff from the Oilers. For CHEAP.

Flyers won't move Hartnell or Simmonds. We lack forward size and toughness. Both these players fit that need so neither will be moved. I really don't see any forward Philly could actually move that would improve the team.

They can move Richards and Carter.

This is my thought. I think turris ma,es the MOST sense out of anyone available... however I could really see Nashville targeting pominville or hartnell. All depends on hartnells health. Buffalo wont move pominville. Burris makes the most sense.

The Predators are trading for Plaxico Burris? Talk about a power forward!

not salary wise we'd probably look elsewhere than Horcoff, plus EDM probably needs someone to mentor all those damn kids.

when you're a fan of the Oilers, you've earned the right to scoff at the talent of other teams.

No thanks. We might need a penalty kill this year

MTL just added another roster player in Campoli, although on the blueline. Could be a precursor to another move.
