Is Scott Walker available?

I realize that the Preds are in the playoff chase and likely won't deal him, he seems like the heart and soul of the team. I've always thought he was very underrated around the league. I think he could be a perfect 2nd line option for a team like the Flames. Come trade deadline time, could you see the Preds dealing him? What would he cost?

Well, everyone is available. Walker would be dealt for the right price. Unfortunately for other teams in the league, unless his contract talks take a turn for the worse (assuming they weren't settled while I was on vacation), Poile's asking price would far exceed what most sane GM's would be willing to part with.

We are a young team who needs leadership, grit, and scoring. He provides all 3 while being defensively responsible (another must).

Scotty provides much needed leadership, defensive responsibility, is a one man penalty killing machine, and is mentoring several of the youngsters on the Preds. His value to the team is WAY out of proportion to what other teams would/could offer, IMO. Remember, Preds have played 11 rookies this year (so far)...
