Give me your best offer. I unlike most Predators fans will not say anyone is off limits.
The reason why it could be either is because Wilson could play center if we get a really good top line LW. So make me the best offer you have.
Some names I really like:
Thomas Vanek-signed not just for one year
Just throwing out some names. But will consider any #1 Centers or LWs
If Vanek has an extension in place say for 7 years he will be much pricier like Nash pricey. I'm interested in Colin Wilson+Watson/Lepisic+Smith+1st. Probably an easy no from Preds fans but that's the price for a signed Vanek.
I'm going to pretend that you didn't just say that.
As for the rest of it, none of those are Righties and only Oleksiak has #1 potential. It'd be nice to get a Dallas-native #1D who is right handed. I'd do Benn + a little for Jones and Hornqvist.
Benn is one of the most complete power forwards in the NHL and is still young at 23. Captain if I'm not mistaken. You dont trade all that for an unproven D-man and a good 2nd liner. Horrible,asset management.
I would think that Josi would be given up in return.
I am ok with that as long as a decent left handed Defensemen comes back the other way. Top line Centers are like top Defensemen. Maybe after one year of Jones playing we can use him as trade bait or even trade Weber. Because Klein-Ekholm will be a very solid second pair for us.
