This is one of the points of the summer where the NHL has some quiet moments prior to the craziness of the offseason setting in. With the buyout window set to open tomorrow, teams are assessing and making final selections along with determining other roster decisions. One such team is the Nashville Predators.
They have made it known they are looking for offensive minded players and some excitement to add to its roster. General manager Barry Trotz also added that he’s willing to spend to the Cap. As Nashville Hockey Now’s Michael Gallagher writes, the free agent market isn’t going to have the names that shimmer. Trotz will opt to make deals to get Nashville where he wants them.
