UFA according to capgeek.

Trotz said that he's actually a guy that they've kind of coveted for a while, and were surprised he wasn't taken before their claim went through. Thinks he has "another level" that he can get to, given the opportunity.

Worth a shot. Worst comes to worst, he goes back on waivers.

Possibly even better. No temptation to qualify if he doesn't earn it.

Would be awesome for Yipper if he can be the rebound getting guy over there. He just didn't fit in with our current game and he's waaay to one-dimensional to do much else.

Hope he works out!

Weber and Suter signed their extensions shortly after this announcement.

Great move by Nashville, i can see Yip being good for them, and Barry Trotz will fix him up.

Like a shark needing to keep in constant motion, Yip needs to stay in constant motion or his poor sense of balance will cause him to tip over. Best of luck.

Absolutely no risk with claiming him. I have never been a fan of Yip and I still think he's no more than a career AHLer, but you never know. The Preds' system embraces defense and hard work. It could be the perfect fit for Yip and Trotz could be the perfect coach for him; he could possibly help him adopt some sort of a defensive game.
