Poile should be fired on spot ... Guy is going to Minnesnowta and everyone knows it.

Ladd is the perfect Preds type player, but Winnipeg is competing for the same spot. Why would they trade him (unless we give them a ransom)?
Saros+Wilson+ 1st for Vanek??

I would be beyond pissed. Preds need to stay away from Vanek IMO.

Ladd and Vanek are both great targets ... in free agency. No need to give up assets for a piece that goes to the open market in July.

but Ladd is in the same division which would make it hard to believe that the two teams would be trade partners, especially if it would help the Jets.

The jets are rumored to be open to moving several players. Not sure the reasoning behind it. New coach new philosophy maybe....

Rather keep Saros and trade one of Hellberg or Maz but will not pull trigger unless Vanek signs first.

Ladd is also a tertiary talent compared to Vanek.

I was talking about the fact you said Ladd and Vanek are players we should go after in UFA but Ladd is not one is the point I was making.

The only way the Predators should trade for Vanek is if they intended to negotiate a contract with him, possibly using the 8th year.

Ladd could work here and I bet could be being considered.

Although I do agree above. Wouldn't make since for Winnipeg.

No way Winnipeg trades their captain and consistent 25g/50pt player to a division rival who is also chasing the same playoff spot without some crazy overpayment.

No way Washington trades FF for Martin Erat either.
